USDA Announces Soybean Sale to China

April 10, 2012
By: Julianne Johnston, Pro Farmer Digital Managing Editor
 
 

Private exporters reported to USDA export sales of 165,000 metric tons (MT) of soybeans to China during the 2012-13 marketing year. The marketing year for soybeans began Sept. 1.

USDA issues both daily and weekly export sales reports to the public. Exporters are required to report to USDA any export sales activity of 100,000 MT or more of one commodity, except 20,000 tons for soybean oil, made in one day to one destination, by 3 p.m. Eastern time on the next business day following the sale. Export sales of less than these quantities must be reported to USDA on a weekly basis.


Juli says: Soybean futures are called to open higher based on this morning's USDA report, in which USDA trimmed 2012-13 carryover. Given strong demand for the upcoming marketing year, new-crop contracts should find additional support from this morning's demand news.
