Cotton and wheat carryover also came in lighter than expected. On the other hand, soybean carryover climbed a bit more than expected for both 2020-21 and 2021-22.

USDA's updated winter wheat production estimate came in just shy of expectations and up nearly 12% from last year’s crop.

The following expectations are based on survey work by Reuters, with the exception of cotton, which is based on polling by Bloomberg.
