CNS Canada -- A lack of rain in Western Canada may be the only thing keeping canola futures prices from dropping much further than they have already.

Chicago | Reuters -- U.S. grain and soybean futures touched their highest prices in about a week on Wednesday, as agricultural markets stabilized following recent drops to contract lows.
