USDA Weekly Grains Inspected For Export Report (Jan. 10): Bump in Corn, Sorghum Inspections Slows Overall Decline

Increases in inspections of corn and two other grains for export were not enough to overcome a drop of nearly three-quarters of a million metric tons (MMT) in U.S. soybean inspections for the week ending Jan. 6.

According to today's Grains Inspected and/or Weighed for Export report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), total grains inspected fell by 243,566 metric tons, or more than 9%, to 2.4 million MMT when compared to the week before.

This compares to a 1.2 MMT drop (40%) in total grain inspections for the week ending Dec. 30.

Last week soybean inspections decreased 709,009 metric tons (-44%) week-to-week to 905,149 metric tons.

By contrast, corn inspections rose 263,114 metric tons (+35%) to 1 MMT, sorghum inspections increased by more than 10-fold to 201,482 metric tons, and wheat inspections went up a little more than 1% to 233,159 metric tons.
