Cargo ship5

For the week ending November 26, total inspections of grain (corn, wheat, and soybeans) for export from all major U.S. export regions totaled 3.5 million metric tons (mmt).

Total grain inspections were down 2 percent from the previous week, up 44 percent from last year, and up 23 percent from the 3-year average.

Wheat and corn inspections increased 38 percent and 7 percent, respectively, but the increases could not offset the decrease in soybean inspections.

Grain inspections increased 9 percent from the previous week in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) and decreased 8 percent in the Mississippi Gulf.

During the last 4 weeks, inspections were 35 percent above last year and 30 percent above the 3-year average.

Year to date, total grain inspections are 12 percent above the same time last year, with corn up 27 percent and soybeans up 10 percent from last year.
