Wheat Shooting Higher on Weather Risks

The wheat complex is posting sharp gains so far on Monday. Chicago contracts are up 30 to 33 cents at midday. Kansas City futures are rallying 32 to 34 cents across the front months. MPLS spring wheat futures are up 22 to 24 cents at midday. Weather is likely playing a factor, as the next 7 days remain dry for the Southern Plains.
