    SINGAPORE- Chicago wheat futures gained more ground on Thursday as dry weather in several US spring wheat growing regions raised concerns over planting delays and global supplies.

    Soybeans fell for a second session while corn slid after closing higher.

    “Dry weather is an issue for spring wheat in the US but we have a long way to go before we start getting too worried,” said one Singapore-based trader who sells US wheat to buyers in Southeast Asia. – Reuters
