CHICAGO, March 15 (UPI) -- Grain futures prices were mixed Friday on the Chicago Board of Trade.

Corn was up 1/2 to up 3, soybeans were off 9 1/2 to up 10 3/4 and wheat was off 1 3/4 to up 3.

May corn seesawed throughout the day amid suggestions corn from Ontario was moving into the United States. Argentina estimated corn production slightly higher than USDA estimates, leading to a negative tone. February soybean crush figures were 5 million bushels lower than January, sending the market lower. Profit-taking put a lid on wheat.

The prices:

Corn: May 7.17 up 1/2, Jly 7.00 1/4 up 1 3/4, Sep 5.86 3/4 up 2 3/4, Dec 5.61 3/4 up 2 1/2.
