Small bump in domestic corn but big drop in Argy supply and we are off 8 3/4 cents, 625 1/2. Wheat loses 10 1/2 to 687 1/2 on a nothing report punt. Rice seller at it again and report reduced exports, raised carry over even though it is now finally reasonable to export Arkansas for the first time this year. 1629, off 37 1/2 and into what appears to be more solid buying power.
