Total Grain Inspections Continue to Slide

For the week ending June 7, total inspections of grain (corn, wheat, and soybeans) for export from all major U.S. export regions reached 2.5 million metric tons (mmt), down 2% from the previous week, unchanged from last year, and 33% above the three-year average.

Although total grain inspections continued to decrease, wheat and soybean inspections increased 6% and 12%, respectively, from the previous week.

In the Pacific Northwest (PNW), inspections of grain dropped 7%, but inspections increased 5% in the Mississippi Gulf.

Outstanding export sales are up from the previous week for wheat, but down for corn and soybeans.
