For the week ending September 19, total inspections of grain (corn, wheat, and soybeans) for export from all major U.S. export regions reached 1.7 million metric tons (MMT).

According to the latest USDA Grain Transportation Report, inspections are up 2% from the previous week, down 35% from last year, and 34% below the 3-year average.

Inspections increased because of a rebound in soybean inspections.

Soybean inspections jumped 38% from the previous week, with shipments destined to Asia increasing 15%.

However, exports of soybeans destined to China remained unchanged from week to week.

Wheat and corn inspections decreased 8 and 45%, respectively, from the past week.

Mississippi Gulf grain inspections increased 23% from the past week, but Pacific Northwest (PNW) inspections decreased 11%.
