Corn futures are trading around a nickel higher this morning. Trade expectations for the USDA weekly export sales were in the 600-800,000 MT range. USDA this morning indicated net weekly corn export sales of 698,500 MT for the week ending December 11, with 268,700 MT booked for unknown destinations. A strong weekly ethanol production report supported the market yesterday, with stocks lower and record high average daily production of 990,000 barrels per day. That is 106-107 million bushels of mostly corn use per week. There are a couple plants using sorghum or cellulosic processes. Chinese officials are now saying that the Viptera (MIR-162) gene modification has been approved. That does not mean they have to buy a lot of US corn, but keep in mind that they have a 2015 WTO quota to import from somebody. DDG sales appear to be the most likely short term beneficiary.
