Jan. 7, 2013 at 6:09 PM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Grain futures closed mostly higher Monday on the Chicago Board of Trade with weather turning drier in Argentina and wetter in Brazil.

Corn was up 2 1/4 to up 5 1/4, soybeans were up 18 1/2 to up 21 3/4, wheat was up 4 to up 6 1/4 and oats were off 2 1/2 to up 1 1/4.

Corn rose despite demand viewed as weak, a U.S. Department of Agriculture report released Monday showing cumulative shipments at 23 percent of export estimates versus a five-year average of 33 percent for this time of year. Wheat futures rose with afternoon gains prompted by the USDA report that showed export inspections in line with expectations. A weaker dollar also supported commodities Monday, giving soybean prices a boost.
