TOP STORIES:

Corn Drops on Coronavirus Concerns

Corn for March delivery fell 0.7% to $3.78 1/2 a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade on Monday, with coronavirus intensifying over the weekend in China and affecting the export demand outlook for corn.

A report from Bloomberg published Monday that Chinese officials have asked for "flexibility" regarding the agreed-upon agricultural purchasing targets in light of coronavirus sent grains futures on the CBOT lower, with corn leading the way. Coronavirus has stagnated agricultural demand in China, with grains traders questioning what the disease will mean for meeting the 2020 target of roughly $36 billion for Chinese purchases of U.S. agriculture.

Soybean Grain Export Inspections Exceed Expectations -- Market Talk

11:27 ET - Soybean export inspections totaled 1.36 million metric tons, according to the USDA. This exceeds analyst expectations, says Terry Reilly of Futures International. Of that amount, 552,523 metric tons were inspected for export to China, which may be a good sign considering the speculation that coronavirus has sapped demand for US grains in China.

Brazil Soybean Harvest Advancing Slowly -- Market Talk

0753 ET - Brazilian farmers had finished harvesting work on 9% of the area planted with soybeans as of Jan. 30, according to agricultural consultancy AgRural. On the same date a year ago 19% of the area had been harvested, though this year's figure is in line with the five-year average. Work in Mato Grosso state, which produces more soybeans than any other Brazilian state, advanced to 28% finished as farmers harvested between downpours. Harvesting is just beginning in some states were irregular rains last year slowed planting and is expected to pick up quickly in the second half of February. The forecast is for heavy rains in Mato Grosso in the first week of February. (jeffrey.lewis@wsj.com)

Both lean hog and live cattle futures on the CME rise, with lean hogs finishing 1.7% higher at 62.625 cents per pound and live cattle futures up 0.9% at $1.208 per pound.
