    SINGAPORE- Chicago soybean futures slid for a third straight session on Wednesday, trading near their lowest in almost two weeks, as dry weather across much of the US Midwest boosted harvest.

    Corn slid for a second session, while wheat gained ground as traders squared positions ahead of widely watched US report on grain and oilseed inventories.

    The most-active soybean contract on the Chicago Board Of Trade (CBOT) slid 0.3 percent to $9.90 a bushel, having hit a Sept. 16 low of 9.85-3/4 a bushel on Tuesday.

    Corn was down 0.3 percent at $3.63-1/2 a bushel, having closed down 0.6 percent in the previous session and wheat rose 0.4 percent to $5.51-1/2 a bushel.
