Export inspections of U.S. soybean exports have fallen this week, dropping below both last week's figure and exports from this time last year.

Export inspections of U.S. soybeans totaled 128,092 metric tons for the week ended June 10, according to the USDA's weekly report released Monday. That's down from 239,384 tons inspected last week, and from 435,469 tons inspected at this time last year.

After being a strong buyer of U.S. soybeans earlier this year, China's presence on the export market has diminished. Less than 3,000 tons of soybeans were inspected for shipment there for the week. Meanwhile, the leading destination was Mexico, at nearly 38,000 tons.

Meanwhile, corn shipments totaled 1.54 million tons, up from last week. Wheat shipments totaled 480,341 tons, slightly lower than last week's figures.
