NEW YORK, May 24 (UPI) -- Soybean futures rose while corn, wheat and oats fell on the Chicago Board of Trade, with the U.S. dollar mixed in Asia and higher in most of Europe.

Corn was off 8 to off 25, soybeans were up 13 1/2 to up 18 1/2, wheat was off 2 1/2 to up 1 1/4, oats were off 20.

Wheat export sales came to 72,400 metric tons for 2011-12 and 754,600 metric tons for 2012-13. Soybeans made gains as traders sensed a bullish market environment.
