Year to date, total grain inspections were down 16% from the same period last year.

Mainly because of rising shipments to Asia and Mexico, wheat inspections increased 17%, while corn inspections increased 8% from the previous week. Soybean inspections were down 16%.

Also, Texas Gulf total grain inspections increased 31%, while Atlantic total grain inspections increased 12% from the previous week.
