Corn And Wheat Lead Agricultural Commodities Lower

Agricultural commodity prices fell on Tuesday, amid a drop in risk appetite and expectations that summer plantings will be large.

May corn dropped 14.2 cents a bushel to $6.346 a bushel.

Soybeans eased 5 cents to $14.26 a bushel -- down for a second day after brushing their highest levels in six months. The May wheat contract lost 17.2 cents to $6.256 a bushel.

After big losses over the past three sessions, July cotton was down another .59 cents at 88.71 cents per lb on the Chicago Board of Trade.
