   Kansas City Wheat Futures Soar on Russian, U.S. Crop Downgrades

   As wheat yield prospects continue to wilt around the world, Kansas City
wheat took center stage Monday, rallying to a 30-cent gain. Corn and the other
wheat markets finished sharply higher as well, while soybeans fell prey to
plunging crude and vegetable oil markets, but were able to close higher.
