Grain Inspections Recede For Week Ending Sept. 14

This article is taken from USDA's Sept. 21 Grain Transportation Report:

For the week ending September 14, total inspections of grain (corn, wheat, and soybeans) for export from major U.S. export regions reached 2.13 million metric tons (mmt), down 10 percent from the previous week, down 21 percent from the same time last year, and 4 percent below the 3-year average.

Corn inspections were unchanged from the previous week, but wheat and soybean inspections decreased 9 and 16 percent, respectively, from the previous week.

Grain inspections in the PNW were down 34 percent from the past
week, and Mississippi Gulf inspections dropped 14 percent for the same period.

Texas Gulf grain inspections rebounded notably, jumping 170 percent from the previous week, due mainly to increased wheat and corn inspections after improvement from the recent hurricane slowdown.

Outstanding (unshipped) export sales were up from the previous week for soybeans, but down for wheat, and corn.
