Soybeans are falling as improving weather across the Midwest boosts the outlook for this year's crop.

November soybeans dropped 12.75 cents, or 1 percent, to $12.855 a bushel Monday.

Cold, wet weather has forced farmers to delay their soybean planting this spring, keeping prices for the crop higher over the past two months. As the weather improves, the chances of a good crop this year increase.

In other trading of agriculture products, corn rose and wheat was unchanged.

Metals fell, led by palladium and platinum.

The price of oil ended little changed after rising to its highest level of the year earlier in the day.
