CHICAGO, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- Grain futures closed lower in Chicago Thursday under export pressure from corn and soybeans.

On the Chicago Board of Trade, corn was off 6 1/2 to off 9 3/4 cents, soybeans were off 22 3/4 to off 28 1/4 cents, wheat was off 15 1/4 to off 15 1/2, oats were off 14 1/2 to off 15 1/2.

Soybeans were lower on news China had canceled major soybean purchases this week. Corn followed soybeans on spillover, as well as the corn market's own export concerns.
