USDA Announces Corn Sale to an Unknown Destination

April 24, 2012
By: Julianne Johnston, Pro Farmer Digital Managing Editor
 
 

Private exporters reported to USDA export sales of 480,000 metric tons (MT) of corn for delivery to unknown destinations during the 2011-12 marketing year. The marketing year for corn 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 metric tons or more of one commodity, made in one day or quantities totaling 200,000 tons or more in any reporting period, 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: This is supportive news for the market this morning, as traders suspect this is confirmation of Chinese corn buying for the current marketing year!
