SYDNEY, June 27 (Reuters) - U.S. soybeans futures rose on Thursday, rebounding from a near two-week low touched earlier in the session, though gains were checked by favorable weather forecasts that eased fears of widespread crop losses.
* The most active soybean futures on the Chicago Board Of Trade were up 0.1% at $8.95-1/4 a bushel, as of 0139 GMT, having earlier hit a low of $8.93 a bushel - the lowest since June 14. Soybeans ended down 1% in the previous session.
* The most active corn futures were up 0.2% at $4.44 a bushel, having gained 1.6% on Wednesday.
* The most active wheat futures were up 0.4% at $5.48-1/2 a bushel, having closed 1.2% firmer on Wednesday.
* Warm, dry weather across the U.S. Midwest to aid corn crops, which have deteriorated in recent weeks as a result of wet weather.
* Dry weather across the United States for the next week should allow farmers to rapidly increasing plantings, which have been lean in recent weeks by prolonged weather.
* Canada's Statscan pegged the wheat plantings at 24.6 million acres, down slightly from last year's 24.7 million and well below the average trade expectation of 25.7 million acres.
* The dollar hovered near a one-week high against the yen on Thursday, propped up by hopes of Sino-U.S. trade talk progress though investors were nonetheless cautious ahead of a meeting between leaders of the two powers in Japan in days ahead.
* Oil fell on Thursday, erasing some of the previous session's strong gains, as traders eye the G20 summit in Japan and a meeting of OPEC and other oil producers to decide on an extension of output cuts.
* The S&P 500 ended lower on Wednesday as gains in technology stocks were offset by a drop in healthcare shares, and investors parsed mixed messages over prospects for a deal to end a trade war between the United States and China.
