That’s because top soybean importer China has stopped buying the oilseed from the U.S. at a time when growers are gathering a bumper crop. "Next year, we are probably going to see less soybeans and more corn because we have such a large carryover," Brusnahan said.

    North Carolina estimated on Tuesday that 3.4 million poultry birds and 5,500 hogs died in Hurricane Florence, exceeding the number killed in the state's last major hurricane two years ago.
