An increase in inspections of U.S. wheat last week could not make up for a larger drop in corn inspections.
According to today's Grains Inspected and/or Weighed for Export report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the total for the week ending July 21 was a little more than 1.6 million metric tons (MMT) or nearly 9% less than the previous week.
Nearly half that was corn, but the 724,000 total was down about a third from the week before.
Soybean and sorghum inspections were also down week-to-week.
Wheat inspections, by contrast, more than doubled to 475,000 metric tons.
