CBOT Trends-Soy up 11-13 cents, wheat up 2-4 cents, corn up 1-3 cents

CHICAGO, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Following are U.S. trade expectations for the resumption of grain and soy complex trading at the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) at 8:30 a.m. CDT (1330 GMT) on Tuesday.

WHEAT - Up 2 to 4 cents per bushel

* Wheat inches higher overnight, supported by diminished winter wheat seeding in Ukraine and ongoing fighting in the region that continue to limit Black Sea grain export.

* The CBOT's most-active wheat contract found support at the 100-day moving average overnight, after dipping below it on Monday.

* Ukrainian Farmers have sown 1.1 million hectares of winter wheat as of Oct. 3, or 27% of the expected area, compared with 3.1 million hectares sown at the same date in 2021, according to agriculture ministry data.

* U.S. winter wheat was 40% planted by Sunday, Oct. 2, up from 31% a week earlier, the U.S. Agriculture department said, but behind the average trade guess in a Reuters poll of analysts.

* CBOT December soft red winter wheat last added 2-1/2 cents to $9.14-1/2 a bushel. K.C. December hard red winter wheat gained 9 cents to $9.97-3/4 a bushel, and MGEX December spring wheat last firmed 5-1/2 cents to $9.85-1/2 a bushel.

CORN - Up 1 to 3 cents per bushel

* Corn trades just above even overnight, as harvest bolsters new crop supplies, though slower-than-expected progress across the U.S. Midwest added support.

* Corn harvest was seen as reaching 20%, up from 12% a week earlier but behind analyst expectations of 22%.

* Ethanol producers processed 432.3 million bushels of corn for the fuel alcohol in August, up from 416.8 million the same month last year, the USDA said.

* CBOT December corn futures last added 1-3/4 cents to $6.82-1/2 per bushel.

SOYBEANS - Up 11 to 13 cents a bushel

* Soybeans firm overnight for a second session, supported by a lower U.S. dollar that is seen as supportive to export activity.

* Soybean harvest was seen as reaching 22%, up from 8% a week earlier and ahead of analyst expectations of 20%.

* Soybean crushers processed 5.25 million tonnes (175 million bushels) of U.S. soybeans in August, the USDA said.

* CBOT November soybeans last traded 12-1/2 cents higher at $13.86-1/2 a bushel. (Reporting by Christopher Walljasper; Editing by Andrea Ricci)
