GRAINS-Wheat falls 1 pct to hit 10-day low as snow blankets U.S. Midwest

SYDNEY, Feb 5 (Reuters) - U.S. wheat futures fell more than 1 percent on Monday to hit a 10-day low as heavy snow fell across the Midwest, easing fears that recent adverse weather will curb production from the world's largest exporter.


* The most active wheat futures on the Chicago Board Of Trade were down 1.3 percent at $4.41 a bushel by 0129 GMT, near the session low of $4.40-1/4 a bushel - the lowest since Jan. 26. Wheat closed down 0.9 percent on Friday.

* The most active corn futures were down 0.8 percent to $3.58-3/4, having closed down 0.1 percent in the previous session.

* Further snow is expected.

* The USDA reported another 365,000 tonnes of U.S. corn export sales on Friday, its seventh daily corn sales announcement in nine days.


* The dollar steadied on Monday after rallying on upbeat U.S. jobs data, which sent bond yields surging on the prospects of increasing inflation and hammered equities.
