Container 2437260 1920

For the week ending October 29, total inspections of grain (corn, wheat, and soybeans) for export from all major U.S. export regions totaled 3.2 million metric tons (MMT).

Total grain inspections were down 21% from the previous week, up 50% from last year, and up 19% from the 3-year average. The drop in inspections was driven by a 28% decrease in wheat inspections, destined primarily to Latin America, and a 26% decrease in soybean inspections, destined mainly to Asia.

Corn inspections, however, increased 6% from week to week. Despite the week-to-week drop in grain inspections, inspections during the last 4 weeks were 56% above last year and 36% above the 3-year average.

Grain inspections decreased 20% from the previous week in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) and decreased 28% in the Mississippi Gulf. Year to year, total year to date inspections are up 9%.
