Corn futures ended the Thursday session with most contracts 5 to 7 1/4 cents in the red. This morning’s Export Sales report indicated that 969,742 MT of old crop corn was sold in the week of 2/28, with 280,900 MT for new crop. Total sales were on the high side of estimates but down 35.13% from this week in 2018. Mexico was the lead buyer of 375,300 MT (and all of the new crop), with Japan buying 306,700 MT. Total commitments are now 1.5% below last year after being 17% ahead a few weeks back. China did purchase a cargo of US sorghum in that week, the first since last August. Trade estimates ahead of tomorrow’s monthly USDA update show Brazil corn production slightly higher at 94.66 MMT, with Argentina at 45.92 MMT.
