Soybean closed sharply lower, with November off more than 18 cents on the day. October meal futures were down $4.70. The overall condition rating of the US crop is actually lower this week than last week in the Crop Progress Report from the USDA. NASS took one point from excellent and put it into the very poor category. This took the Brugler500 Index 4 points lower, in the largest single-week reduction shown this year. This is a delayed reaction to frost and freeze damage, along with localized flooding and damage from heavy rains. Approximately 45% of the crop is now dropping leaves, and 3% of the crop has been harvested, compared to the 5yr averages of 53% and 8%, respectively.
