Corn export inspections fell below expectations last week, but according to Karen Braun, global agriculture columnist with Thomson Reuters, the year-over-year percentage of -16% is about the best it's been in 2020.
For the week ending July 23, the United States Department of Agriculture reported that the amount of corn inspected for export was 126,525 metric tons (or about 19%) higher than for the week ending July 25, 2019.
Sorghum, wheat and soybeans were all ahead of the pace set during the previous market year to date, with sorghum up 136%, wheat up 8%, and soybeans up 4%.
Soybeans, however, were running about 55% behind for the week compared to a year ago.
