DELTA (LOWER MISSISSIPPI RIVER LEVELS): A strong storm system moving forward this week will not only bring widespread precipitation to the Delta region, but will also bring widespread precipitation to the river systems that feed the Mississippi River, helping to maintain high water levels through the end of the year. A couple of fronts may produce more precipitation next week which will also help water levels.
BRAZIL (CORN/SOYBEANS): Scattered rains will continue in central and northern Brazil for the next week, as is typical for this time of year. A front moved through the southern areas on Monday, but it is getting drier through the rest of the week. Some showers will fill in again over the weekend, but the state of Rio Grande do Sul will see much less precipitation. The drier conditions there are somewhat worrying and could start to create some stress as rainfall has been lower than normal for the last six weeks or so. Otherwise, generally favorable weather continues for most corn and soybean areas.
ARGENTINA (CORN/SOYBEANS/WHEAT): A front moved through the region over the weekend, ending the extreme heat wave that had been in the region for the past week. The rainfall was not very intense and the drought continues to have negative influences on the development and planting of corn and soybeans. Although this week will not be as hot, the region will be mostly dry. In general, conditions remain poor for corn and soybeans until rainfall becomes more consistent.
EUROPE (WINTER WHEAT): The weather will remain active this week with several systems advancing with periods of rain, especially in the south where wheat remains active. In general, wheat and other winter grains remain in good condition, whether or not they are dormant.
