USDA Announces Corn Sale to Mexico

January 23, 2012 04:38 AM

Private exporters reported to USDA export sales of 152,900 metric tons (MT) of corn for delivery to Mexico 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 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: We have seen an increase in corn export sales recently. If the U.S. dollar index continues to soften, it should bring more business our way.
