The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) is ready to release its reports from the worldwide tours on the 2015-16 corn and sorghum harvest quality.

“The harvest quality reports were well-received all around the world,” USGC Manager of Global Trade Manuel Sanchez said. “Through our conferences, seminars and one-on-one meetings, we were able to present the results of these reports to interested buyers. Ultimately, this timely and transparent information helped build their confidence in the United States’ ability to supply them with high-quality corn and sorghum in the coming year.”

International customers look forward to the release of the reports, especially for exports and when USGC farmers assist with presentations at the roll out events.

“Our farmer members are able to explain to buyers what happened day-to-day on their operations,” Sanchez said. “That information is invaluable to our overseas customers who want to know exactly how our weather impacted the quality of U.S. corn and sorghum that is available for sale.”

Harvest reports only track the quality of the corn and sorghum grown in the United States and USGC will publish two additional reports in the coming year for the quality of the crops as they are assembled for export.

“The export cargo quality reports that we will be releasing soon provide more information for our customers,” Sanchez said. “The United States is the only country in the world that releases this type of information, and our buyers are grateful for it. It helps them make informed buying decisions.”
