U.S. Makes First Major Corn Sale to China Since 2001

April 28 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. exporters sold 115,000 metric tons of corn to China, its first major sale of the grain to the world’s most-populous nation since 2001, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data.




The corn is for delivery in the year that ends on Aug. 31, the USDA said today in a statement. The department, which discloses all export-sales activity involving more than 100,000 tons of a commodity in a single day, last reported a major Chinese corn sale on Dec. 11, 2001, a purchase that was later canceled.



Snow and cold weather has delayed corn planting in parts of northeast China, the agriculture ministry said yesterday. The China National Grain and Oils Information Center last week said the Asian nation may increase imports should international prices remain below domestic levels.



“China’s weather has been a little cool, so they’re behind on planting,” said Jerod Leman, a broker at Wellington Commodities in Carmel, Indiana. The sale is “a big story” for corn prices, he said.



Corn futures for July delivery rose 10.50 cents, or 3 percent, to $3.6425 a bushel at 11:19 a.m. on the Chicago Board of Trade. Before today, the price was down 15 percent this year, partly because of rising stockpiles in the U.S.



China, the second-largest corn producer, will harvest 155 million tons of the grain, down from a record 165.9 million a year ago, the USDA said in a report April 9. Inventories before this year’s harvest will reach 49.12 million tons, down from 53.17 million a year earlier, the USDA said.



The U.S. is the world’s biggest grower and exporter of corn.

    Definitely imagine that which you stated. Your favourite reason appeared
    to be at the internet the simplest thing to keep in mind of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst people
    think about issues that they just do not understand about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as defined
    out the entire thing with no need side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm going to
    start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to
    ask!
