USGC Releases the Corn Export Cargo Quality Report

The U.S. Grains Council released its 2023-2024 Corn Export Cargo Quality Report which contained some good news. The average aggregate quality of U.S. corn samples tested for the report was better than or equal to U.S. No. 2 on all grade factors and represented an improvement on the five-year average of previous crops on several fronts.

“The Council is committed to furthering global food security and mutual economic benefit through trade,” says USGC Chair Brent Boydston. “This report will assist buyers in making well-informed decisions by providing reliable and timely information about U.S. corn destined for export.”

The average test weight came in at 58.1 pounds per bushel, which was higher than the previous marketing year and the five-year average. Chemical analysis showed an 8.9 percent protein concentration, up from 8.7 percent last year and the five-year average. All samples tested below the Food and Drug Administration’s action level for aflatoxins.
