Total Grain Inspections Remain Stable For Week Ending 10/12/17

This article is taken from USDA's 10/19 Grain Transportation Report:

For the week ending October 12, total inspections of grain (corn, wheat, and soybeans) for export from major U.S. export regions reached 2.52 million metric tons (mmt), unchanged from the previous week, down 37 percent from the same time last year, and 11 percent below the 3-year average.

Total inspections of soybeans continued to rise, increasing 19 percent from the previous week. Pacific Northwest (PNW) inspections increased 35 percent but Mississippi Gulf inspections decreased 14 percent from the past week.

Rail deliveries of grain to major U.S. ports are increasing as the fall harvest intensifies. Outstanding (unshipped) export sales were up for corn and soybeans but down for wheat.
