USGC Releases 2021/2022 Corn Export Cargo Quality Report

The U.S. Grains Council Wednesday released its 2021/2022 Corn Export Cargo Quality Report. 

The report shows the average aggregate quality of U.S. corn samples tested was better than or equal to U.S. No. 2 on all grade factors. 

The report is based on 430 export cargo samples collected from corn shipments undergoing federal inspection and grading processes at export terminals. 

It also provides information on grading, handling and how U.S. corn is moved and controlled through export channels. 

Average test weight found by the analysis was higher than in 2020/2021 and the five-year average, with nearly 99.8 percent of samples at or above the minimum requirements for U.S. No. 1 grade corn, indicating overall good quality. 

Chemical composition indicated protein concentration higher than 2020/2021 and the five-year average with lower starch and higher oil concentrations than the previous year. 

All but two export samples tested below the U.S. Food and Drug Administration action level for aflatoxins.
