Soybeans end day with 21¢ rally | Thursday, January 26, 2023

Corn ended the day up 7¢.

Soybeans, after being hit hard earlier in the week, ended the day with a 21¢ rally. 

Nick Repke with Kluis Commodity Advisors says soybeans were boosted today by the news of increased U.S. soybean exports, higher crude oil prices, and the announcement that Brazil's soybean production is now expected to be 3.7% smaller than previously anticipated because of drought damage. 

Naomi Blohm with Total Farm Marketing adds the Brazil harvest is off to a slow start. 

"Which gives optimism that U.S. soy exports gain a little extra business in the short term, because it will take longer to get the Brazil beans from the field, to the port, to the rest of the world," she says.
