According to the USDA’s latest Weekly Export Sales report, corn net sales of 1,518,000 metric tons (MT) for 2013-2014 were up 81 percent from last week and 35 percent from the four-week average. However, it is 17 percent below the yearly average.

Increases were reported for Mexico (437,400 MT), Japan (342,400 MT, including 89,100 MT switched from unknown destinations and decreases of 1,500 MT), unknown destinations (207,100 MT), Colombia (179,400 MT), South Korea (134,300 MT, including 65,000 MT switched from China), and Taiwan (75,900 MT).  Decreases were reported for China (71,500 MT), Spain (55,000 MT), and the French West Indies (9,000 MT). 

Corn net sales of 164,500 MT for 2014-2015 were reported for Japan.  Exports of 1,138,100 MT were up 33 percent from the previous week and 38 percent from the prior 4-week average.  The primary destinations were South Korea (256,700 MT), Mexico (224,300 MT), Japan (190,600 MT), Egypt (135,000 MT), and Peru (83,300 MT).

Doane Advisory Services shows the Black Sea situation weighed on grains Wednesday night. After having reacted bullishly to Russia’s weekend invasion of Ukraine, the corn and wheat markets have since worked lower. Traders are unsure if the changed situation will disrupt Black Sea exports or cause Ukraine to sell more aggressively in order to raise funds. Corn futures continued Wednesday’s slide overnight. May corn dipped 2.25 cents to $4.7975/bushel in early Thursday action, while December sagged 1.75 to $4.815.
