Soybeans, corn extend losses on demand concerns, U.S. weather



SINGAPORE, Aug 16 (Reuters) - Chicago soybean and corn futures lost more ground on Tuesday, with expectations of crop-friendly U.S. weather conditions and declining demand in top importer China weighing on the market.

Wheat ticked higher after two sessions of losses.

FUNDAMENTALS

* The most-active soybean contract on the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) Sv1 was down 0.2% at $14.09 a bushel, as of 0016 GMT.

* Corn Cv1 gave up 0.2% to $6.27-1/4 a bushel, while wheat Wv1 added 0.6% to $8.05-1/4 a bushel.

* The People's Bank of China cut key interest rates on weaker-than-expected economic data from the world's second-largest economy, raising concerns of a global recession.

* A contraction of China's economy, by far the largest buyer of U.S. soybeans, could curb demand for U.S. commodities.

* U.S. weather forecasts for rain in the coming weeks could aid parched soybean crops, adding pressure to markets.

* U.S. exporters prepared 744,571 tonnes of soybeans for inspection during the week ended Aug. 11, down 14.55% from the week prior, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

* Corn export inspections were down 3.1% and wheat exports fell 41.29%, the USDA said.

* Hot and dry weather conditions in the past weeks have threatened U.S. production prospects.

* The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) rated 57% of the national corn crop in good-to-excellent condition in its weekly progress report, down 1 percentage point from the previous week but just above analyst estimates.

* In a report released after the market closed on Monday, the agency rated 58% of the soybean crop as good-to-excellent, down from 59% the previous week and matching trade expectations.

* Stressful weather during August can threaten the yield potential of corn and soybeans in the United States, the world's biggest corn supplier and the No. 2 soybean exporter after Brazil. August is a particularly important month for soybean development, when much of the crop is setting pods.

* Ukrainian officials are working to release a detained vessel carrying Ukrainian wheat purchased by Egypt's government, Ukraine's Mideast envoy told reporters on Monday.

* The vessel, Emmakris III, was detained last month at the request of Ukraine's prosecutor general to investigate its alleged Russian owner, court documents seen by Reuters showed.

* Commodity funds were net sellers of CBOT soybean, corn, soymeal, soyoil and wheat contracts on Monday, traders said. COMFUND/CBT

MARKET NEWS

* Global equities and the U.S. dollar advanced on Monday despite weaker-than-expected economic data in China that prompted its central bank to cut its lending rate, stoking concerns of a global recession.
