USDA Announces Corn Sale

January 18, 2012 02:05 AM
 

Private exporters reported to USDA export sales of 120,000 metric tons (MT) of corn for delivery to Egypt during the 2011-12 marketing year, which 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 to one destination, by 3:00 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 isn't a large sale, but any demand news is welcome for the corn market right now.
