Wheat encountered light selling pressure throughout the day. The rally in corn, which wiped out early losses, was partly based on news that winds of 50 to 80 miles had sent thousands of bushels of Iowa corn tumbling to the ground. Leslie Carl, state crop reporter, said the winds would "play havoc with Iowa's corn harvest." Wheat closed j-} lower, December $2.11 A-i. Corn was i lower to i- higher, December $1.18 i-i.
