Nov. 26, 2012 at 6:00 PM

CHICAGO, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- Grain futures prices closed higher on the Chicago Board of Trade Monday with the U.S. dollar index flat, dropping 0.05 percent to 80.24.

Corn was up 1 1/2 to up 2 3/4, soybeans were up 6 to up 9 1/2, wheat was up 1 1/4 to up 5 and oats were off 1/4 to up 2 3/4.
