Orange juice futures are sharply lower after Florida said consumer demand fell last month.

Coffee prices fell as Vietnam began harvesting what many expect to be a large crop.

Energy and metal prices mostly fell Tuesday as traders anticipated less economic stimulus from the Federal Reserve.

Coffee for December delivery fell 4.3 cents, or 3.6 per cent, to $1.1495 a pound. November frozen concentrated orange juice fell 8.15 cents, or 6 per cent, to $1.2755 a pound.

Other crops were mixed. December wheat rose 1.75 cents to $6.43 a bushel.

Benchmark oil for October delivery fell $1.17, or 1.1 per cent, to $105.42 a barrel in New York. Gold fell $8.40 to $1,309.40 an ounce.
