-- Corn futures may open 1 cent to 2 cents a bushel higher on the CBOT because of dry weather in the past weeks in parts of the U.S. Midwest, including Iowa and Illinois, the biggest growers, Dave Marshall, a farm-marketing adviser at Toay Commodity Futures Group LLC in Nashville, Illinois, said in a telephone interview.
-- Soybean futures may open little changed to 1 cent a bushel higher in Chicago on the lack of rain in the past week in the U.S., Marshall said. Soybean-oil futures are expected to open steady to 0.1 cent higher, and soybean-meal futures may open little changed to $2 higher per 2,000 pounds.
