Private exporters sell 102,100 mt of US corn to Mexico: USDA


Private exporters Friday reported selling 102,100 mt of US corn in one day for delivery to Mexico during the 2017-18 marketing year (September-August), the US Department of Agriculture said Monday.

Mexico has been the main buyer of US corn so far during the 2017-18 marketing year, buying 9.7 million mt, of which 4.485 million mt has already been shipped, according to the USDA's last weekly export sales report released Friday, which considered export sales until December 28.

Exporters are required to report to the USDA any US export sales of 100,000 mt or more of a single agricultural commodity made in one day.

The agency does not disclose the identity of exporters reporting under this requirement.

Corn is the primary feedstock for ethanol production in the US and is the main competitor for dried distillers grains.
