For the week ending December 3, total inspections of grain (corn, wheat, and soybeans) for export from all major U.S. export regions totaled 3.6 million metric tons (MMT).

Total grain inspections were down 11 percent from the previous week, up 59 percent from last year, and up 33 percent from the 3-year average.

From the previous week, wheat and soybeans were down slightly, but corn inspections dropped 29 percent, mainly because corn shipments to Asia fell 47 percent.

At 1.35 mmt, Pacific Northwest (PNW) grain inspections reached a high for the year, increasing 28 percent from the previous week.

The week-to-week increase in PNW inspections, however, could not offset the 35-percent drop in the Mississippi Gulf and the 20-percent decrease in the Texas Gulf.

During the last 4 weeks, grain inspections were 42 percent above the same time last year and 38 percent above the 3-year average.
