Private exporters reported to USDA export sales of 20,000 metric tons (MT) of soybean oil to Morocco during the 2011-12 marketing year. The marketing year for soybean oil began Oct. 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.
