If you wish to trade grains, you should be familiar with the markets. You are trading against guys who have a research department at their disposal.

Otherwise trading grains is like trading anything else.

However, grains are not particularly suited for daytrading:

The opening hours cannot be compared to those of financial futures. There is a (rare) risk that you will find yourself locked in a position limit up or limit down. Also some of the grains are not among the most liquid futures.

the obvious choice

May I suggest the obvious choice, aptly named:

Day Trading Grain Futures, by David Bennett Day Trading Grain Futures: A practical guide to trading for a living (Na) eBook: David Bennett: Kindle Store

It's a quick read, but fundamentally sound and could be easily applied/modded to fit your own style.
