DTN Closing Grain Comments    02/21 13:59
   Corn Falls to Another New Low; Wheat, Soybeans, Soy Products Move Lower

   Tuesday strength did not last long as grain and soy markets plunged on
Wednesday, led by spot corn futures which fell to another new contract low.
Beneficial South American weather, an insatiable desire by funds to increase
short positions, and lack of competitiveness for both U.S. soybeans and wheat
weighed on markets again.

Dana Mantini
Senior Market Analyst
