Aug. 15 (Bloomberg) -- What follows are opening calls for U.S. grain and oilseed markets, which open at 5 p.m. on the Chicago Board of Trade.

-- Soybean futures are called to open 2 cents to 3 cents higher on speculation that a U.S. Department of Agriculture report tomorrow will show increased exports of the oilseed and its products, said Dax Wedemeyer, a commodity broker at US Commodities in West Des Moines, Iowa. Soybean-oil futures may open 0.1 cent to 0.2 cent a pound higher, and soybean-meal futures may open $1 to $2 higher per 2,000 pounds.
