SYDNEY, July 2 (Reuters) - U.S. corn futures edged higher on Tuesday, rebounding from a near three-week low touched in the previous session, after a widely watched report pegged the condition of North American crops below market forecasts.
* The most active corn futures on the Chicago Board Of Trade corn futures were up 0.3% at $4.16-3/4 a bushel by 0110 GMT, having closed down 2.0% in the previous session when prices hit a low of $4.10-1/4 a bushel - the lowest since June 11. The most active soybean futures were little changed at $9.08-3/4 a bushel, having closed down 1.6% on Monday.
* The most active wheat futures were up 0.3% at $5.13-1/4 a bushel, having closed down 2.9% on Monday when prices hit a low if $5.08-1/2 a bushel - the lowest since June 11.
* The USDA in its weekly crop progress report left its condition ratings for both corn and soybeans unchanged from the prior week, at 56% and 54% at a good-to-excellent state, respectively.
* Analysts polled by Reuters had expected a slight improvement for both crops in this week's report.
* Improving crop weather, including warmer Midwest temperatures over the weekend and beneficial rains in northern areas, is expected to help delayed crop growth.
* The Australian dollar nursed wounds on Tuesday, a day after it posted its biggest one-day fall in more than two months ahead of an expected central bank easing, while improved risk appetite supported the greenback.
* Oil prices slipped on Tuesday as worries that a weakening global economy would dent demand for the commodity outweighed OPEC's decision to extend supply cuts until next March.
* U.S. stocks climbed on Monday, but finished off earlier highs, led by gains in technology stocks on optimism for progress in U.S.-China trade talks and signs of a likely reprieve for Chinese telecom company Huawei.
