For Corn, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) said Friday morning in its daily sale report that private exporters reported export sales of 132,000 tonnes of Corn for delivery to Israel during MY 2015/2016.

Agriculture analysts noted that this data also helped Corn go higher Friday as it showed new overseas demand for US Corn.

Have a terrific week.
