Chicago Agriculture Commodities Finished Higher


Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) agriculture grains futures finished higher Thursday with Wheat futures rising 0.42%, supported by results from a tour that illustrated the damage done to the crop in a Key growing area.

Corn and Soybean finished higher as uncertainty over the impact of dryness in parts of the US Midwest underpinned prices despite rainfall and milder temperatures this week.

The most active Corn contract for December delivery rose 1.75 cents, or 0.45%, to 3.8775 bu.
