GRAINS-U.S. wheat, corn and soybeans rise ahead of USDA report release

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 7 (Reuters) - U.S. wheat and soybean futures edged higher on Monday, on track for a second session of gains, ahead of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) data that will estimate U.S. 2019/20 ending stocks for wheat, corn and soybeans.
