   Corn Takes Lead as Grain, Soybeans Rally Early Week

   In somewhat quiet trade, Corn, wheat and soy all rejected early weakness to
close higher, with corn the strongest. U.S. corn and soybeans are the world's
cheapest offer. Wheat continues to gain ground on tightening U.S. and world
stocks, although Minneapolis set back a penny.
