gains@ SYDNEY, Sept 30 (Reuters) - U.S. soybean futures edged up on Monday, rebounding from a one-week low touched in the previous session, though fears of a protracted trade war between Washington and Beijing capped gains.


* The most active soybean futures on the Chicago Board Of Trade were up 0.3% at $8.85-1/2 a bushel by 0015 GMT, having closed down 0.6% on Friday when prices hit a Sep. 20 low of $8.82 a bushel.

* Market eyes next U.S. grain stocks report slated for Monday.

* The U.S. Department of Agriculture, through its daily reporting system, said private exporters sold 126,000 tonnes of U.S. soybeans to China for delivery in the 2019-2020 marketing year that began Sept. 1.

* However, fears about a protracted U.S.-China trade war was stoked by U.S. President Donald Trump administration considering delisting Chinese companies from U.S. stock exchanges.

* Weather forecasts suggested that previously expected cold weather risks to wide swaths of the Midwest may not have much of an impact on yields.

* Excessively wet conditions in the northern U.S. Plains and Canadian Prairies have hurt the quality of the region's spring and durum wheat crops, potentially tightening supplies of top grades of the grains, handlers and agronomists said.
