USDA Weekly Grains Inspected For Export Report (May 3): Corn Keeps Total Inspections Even as Soybeans Take Smaller Piece of Pie

Total grain inspections for export stayed at about 3 million metric tons last week, increasing less than 1%, thanks to a 9.5% jump in corn inspections.

Today's Grains Inspected and/or Weighed for Export report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) shows that a second healthy week for corn inspections (2.1 million metric tons) was enough to overcome declines in wheat and soybeans and keep total inspections virtually the same as the week before.

Soybeans, in particular, became an even smaller proportion of total grain inspections for the week ending April 29, falling by nearly 50% to 143,418 metric tons.

Wheat, meanwhile, went down 12% to 509,932 metric tons, and sorghum increased 30% to 235,496 metric tons.
