The CME Group reported 137 deliveries against CBOT November soybean futures, which expire on Tuesday.

Lower in narrow, rangebound trade amid a lack of market-moving news.

The corn harvest was 82 percent completed, behind 90 percent for both last year's pace and the five-year average. About 95 percent of winter wheat has emerged, near the 98 percent average. Wheat conditions in the West Plains are below last year and the 5-year average.

Flat to weaker in rangebound trade, hovering just above contract lows as the USA harvest progresses.

The soybean harvest is nearing completion, while the corn harvest is still 17% points from being finished, behind its five-year average.

CBOT December corn last traded down 1-1/4 cent at $3.42-1/4 per bushel. The U.S. corn harvest is behind the historical averages in Wisconsin and much of the Eastern Midwest. The most active soybean futures were little changed at $9.86-3/4 a bushel, after firming 0.2 percent on Friday.
