Weekly Grain Inspections Up For Wheat for Week Ending Oct. 26

This article is taken from USDA's Nov. 2 Grain Transportation Report:

For the week ending October 26, total inspections of grain (corn, wheat, and soybeans) for export from all major U.S. export regions reached 3.42 million metric tons (mmt), up 1% from the previous week, down 21% from the same time last year, and unchanged from the 3-year average.

Total inspections of wheat jumped 85% from the previous week as shipments to Asia and Latin America increased.

Soybeans inspections were unchanged from the past week, but inspections of corn decreased 19% from the previous week due primarily to lower shipments of corn destined to Latin America.

Although Pacific Northwest (PNW) inspections increased 16% from the past week, inspections in the Mississippi Gulf decreased 20% for the same period.

Outstanding (unshipped) export sales continued to increase for wheat and corn, but were down for soybeans.
