Average soybean basis across the US was down 1 cent on account of declining river markets, while corn basis remained unchanged on the week.

Soybean plants gained one cent on the week but weakness along the river pulled basis lower throughout the country. Soybean basis at the gulf dropped 3 cents which negatively impacted terminals along the river. Terminals along the Ohio River were affected most and declined by an average of 4 cents since last Thursday.

This week’s average U.S corn basis remained unchanged despite the gulf moving 2 cents lower and the rest of the river declining by an average of ¾ of a cent. The rally in the futures market since last Thursdays lows helped improve farm selling and capped basis from advancing higher.
