DES MOINES, Iowa (Agriculture.com)--With traders waiting for the USDA/WASDE Reports to be released at 11:00am CT, the CME Group corn, soybean markets are seen higher and wheat lower.

In overnight trading, the May corn futures contract traded 3 cents higher at $6.94 per bushel. May soybean futures traded 3 cent higher at $14.76 per bushel, and May wheat traded 1 cent lower at $6.93. For May soybean meal futures, the contract traded $2.20 per short ton higher at $438.30.
