Corn futures closed mostly 2 or 3 cents lower on the day, despite a more than 700 point correction in the US Dollar Index. The national average cash corn index was at $3.56 1/4 as of Monday night. That puts the national average basis at -31 3/4 cents, which is 12 3/4 cents weaker than it was a year ago. The cash price is 58 1/4 cents below the same day last year. Looking ahead to 2015 crops, Congressional Budget Office (CBO) budgets are using 89 million planted acres, down from 90.6 million last year, and they penciled in a 165 bpa yield.
