USDA Grain Transportation Report (3/23): Expansion to GTR Barge Grain Movements Data File

According to today's USDA Grain Transportation Report, on March 23, grain barge movements for all of the Locks listed in Table 9 of the Grain Transportation Report will be included in the Table 9: Barge Grain Movements data file.

Previously, the data file only included current and historical information on weekly barge grain movements for the Mississippi River Lock 27, Ohio River Lock 52, and Arkansas River Lock 1 in the “Data” tab.

The updated data file will continue to include the above information in the “Data” tab, but will also include the current and historical weekly barge grain movements for the Illinois River LaGrange Lock, Mississippi River Lock 15, Mississippi River Lock 25, and Mississippi River Lock 26 in the new, “Other Locks” tab.

Beginning with the week ending January 5, 2013, and through the current date, weekly corn, wheat, soybean, other grain, and total grain volumes for each lock will be updated every week.
