This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Tuesday, March 20th. The grain market is down, led by corn and soy. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here's Virginia McGathey.

McGATHEY ... "Wheat also fell double-digits. Improved weather in Kansas definitely is pressuring the futures. However, it’s dry in Oklahoma and in Texas and it seems that there was some commercial selling and some bearish momentum has been building since March 1st. That being said, it’s still dry. We don’t know exactly what the crop damage is going to be in the South for the winter wheat. When that happens, we’ll be able to gauge that a little bit better and even those unknowns out there. But, the stock market is down. That’s also adding to the negative sentiment in the selling and putting pressure on all the markets across the board."
