CHICAGO, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Grain futures closed mixed in Chicago Wednesday with the dollar index up 0.24 percent on the International Exchange.

Corn was off 1 1/2 to off 2 1/4, soybeans were off 1 to up 2 3/4, wheat was unchanged to up 2 3/4 and oats were up 1 1/4 to up 3.

Corn prices were little changed with late buying -- a spillover from soybeans -- providing some support. Wheat futures also followed a late upswing in the soybean pit.
