Reports of very strong production in Australia were also negative for prices. Australia estimates its production above 31 million tons but traders think production could be over 34 million tons. Canada will announce its estimate later this week and a big production estimate is expected. World prices have held steady or worked a little higher even with additional supplies available to the market as Russian prices remain elevated. US weather is mixed with good conditions in the majority of the country but still dry conditions in the western Great Plains.
