China To Buy 105,000 Tons Wheat From US
U.S. exporters reported that a sale of 105,000 tonnes of hard red spring wheat was switched for delivery to China, instead for unknown destinations, during the 2003/04 marketing year, the U.S. Agriculture Department said on Friday.
The marketing year for wheat began on June 1.
U.S. exporters must report any U.S. or optional origin export sales activity of at least 100,000 tonnes -- except 20,000 tonnes or more for soybean oil -- made in one day to a single destination by the following business day. Sales of smaller quantities must be reported weekly.
