SYDNEY, May 2 (Reuters) - U.S. corn futures edged up on Thursday to hit a five-week high as forecasts for further rains across a key growing region stoked fears of widespread planting delays.
* The most active corn futures on the Chicago Board Of Trade were up 0.1 percent at $3.68-3/4 by 0131 GMT, near the session high of $3.69-1/2 a bushel - the highest since March 29. Corn gained 1.7 percent in the previous session.

* The most active wheat futures were up 0.1 percent at $4.36-1/4 a bushel, having closed up 1.7 percent on Wednesday.
* Corn drew support from concerns that wet weather across the U.S. Midwest will slow planting.
