Corn Leaps Due to Storm Risk

Wheat and corn futures rose Monday after storms in the Midwest over the weekend threatened both crops.
Wheat for December delivery rose 7.75 cents to $6.9475 a bushel and December corn rose 6 cents to $4.4925 a bushel.
Weekend storms delayed the harvest of the corn crop and also caused delays in planting the winter wheat crop, said Todd Hultman, a grain analyst with DTN/The Progressive Farmer in Omaha, Neb.
