U.S. corn that is being exported during the 2018-2019 marketing year rates No. 2 or better on all grade factors, according to a U.S. Grains Council analysis. The corn tested had lower average stress cracks, higher average 100-kernel weight, slightly higher average kernel true density and a higher average percent of whole kernels compared to the same analysis done in 2017-2018. The report, which provides an early view of grading factors established by USDA, is based on 436 export cargo samples collected from corn shipments undergoing federal inspection and grading processes at export terminals. USGC will roll out the new results in a series of crop quality seminars around the world beginning next week.
