Feb. 20, 2013 at 5:44 PM

CHICAGO, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Grains were mostly higher Wednesday on the Chicago Board of Trade, despite a 0.63 percent gain in the dollar index.

Corn was up 2 1/2 to up 5 1/4. Soybeans were up 10 3/4 to up 14. Wheat was up 6 to up 6 1/2. Oats were off 1/4 to up 10.

Soybeans set the pace Wednesday with prices climbing while energy and metals slid.
