CROPS UP: Commodities prices rose following a sell-off last week. Traders were betting a USDA report his week will show a tighter U.S. surplus for corn and wheat. Wheat gained 8.25 cents to settle at $7.9875 per bushel, and soybeans added 3 cents to settle at $13.38 per bushel
SUPPLY REPORT: A USDA report to be released Wednesday is expected to show higher demand for corn from the U.S. ethanol industry, which has ramped up production as high oil prices boost profit margins.
OIL ALSO UP: Oil rose $1.33 to settle at $103.88 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
