Grains mixed Tuesday

March 19, 2013 at 7:01 PM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, March 19 (UPI) -- Grain futures prices were mixed Monday on the Chicago Board of Trade with the dollar index up 0.45 percent to 83.03 on the International Exchange.

Corn was up 1/4 to up 8 3/4; soybeans were off 2 3/4 to off 8; wheat was up 5 3/4 to up 9 1/4 and oats were up 1/2 to up 6 1/2.

Corn prices rose on news that two ethanol plants in the eastern Corn Belt would soon be back in production. Wheat moved higher partly in sympathy with corn prices, but gains were held in check by a stronger dollar, compliments of uncertainty hanging over the euro. Soybeans were under pressure from the harvest in Brazil, which tends to draw buyers away from U.S. markets.

The prices:

Corn: May 7.28 1/2 up 8 1/2, Jly 7.12 up 8 3/4, Sep 5.90 1/4 up 2, Dec 5.62 1/4 up 1/4.

Soybeans: May 14.06 3/4 off 2 3/4, Jly 13.88 off 6 1/2, Aug 13.50 off 6 3/4, Sep 12.87 3/4 off 8.

Wheat: May 7.22 up 9 1/4, Jly 7.20 3/4 up 7 3/4, Sep 7.26 1/2 up 6 3/4, Dec. 7.38 1/2 up 5 3/4.

Oats: May 3.96 up 1/2, Jly 3.87 up 1/2, Sep 3.68 1/2 up 6 1/2, Dec 3.62 up 3.
