CHICAGO, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Grain futures were modestly higher on the Chicago Board of Trade Tuesday as tight global supplies and shipping delays in Brazil boosted U.S. suppliers.

Corn was up 4 1/2 to up 5 1/2, soybeans were up 13 1/4 to up 18, wheat was up 1 1/2 to up 3 1/4 and oats were up 1 to up 1 3/4.

Corn found support exporting difficulties that are slowing the supply line in Brazil. Wheat prices benefited from spillover support from soybeans, although gains were tempered by a stronger dollar. Soybeans extended a rally with early gains that set the pace for the day.
