-- Soybean futures may open 1 cent to 2 cents a bushel lower on speculation that rain during the past month across the U.S. Midwest boosted yields as the harvest accelerates, Jerry Gidel, the chief grain analyst for Rice Dairy LLC in Chicago, said in a telephone interview.

-- Corn futures are called to open 1 cent to 2 cents a bushel lower as dry weather forecast for the next 10 days will speed up crop collecting, Gidel said.
