U.S. Wheat up, weather concerns support.

Chicago wheat futures rose for a third consecutive session with prices underpinned by dry weather threatening to reduce U.S. spring crop production. The wheat market has been supported as crop conditions in the northern U.S. Plains spring wheat region have deteriorated sharply in the last month due to hot and dry weather. Analysts expect the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Friday to lower its estimate of U.S. spring wheat plantings for 2017.
