CORN - Friday's USDA report showed an increase in U.S. inventories before the 2009 harvest and there is speculation that ideal crop weather will help the U.S. crop recover from the flood. About 833 million bushels of unsold corn will be on hand before next year's harvest, up from 673 million forecast a month ago, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said July 11.

The surplus for the year ending Aug. 31 will be 1.598 billion bushels, up 12 percent from last month's estimate as ethanol-plant construction delays and falling demand for animal feed lifts this year's corn supply, the government said.

SOY BEANS - A shift to hot, dry weather will reduce yields after record Midwest rains last month stunted root development, leaving U.S. crops vulnerable to heat stress.
