First US Corn Shipment to China since mid 1990s

On 22 June 2010 Brownfield Ag News for America reported that the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) was tracking a shipment of 55,000 tons of yellow corn from the U.S. to China.  This was the first time in 15 years the U.S. corn exports were being shipped to China. 

USGC noted that another shipment of U.S. corn imports were scheduled for July 2010.

The orginial source did not mention whether the U.S. corn exports included or excluded gene-modified (GM) corn.
