Export sales of U.S. soy products, including beans, meal and

In this week's export sales report, the USDA says that export
sales of U.S. soybeans totaled 902,900 metric tons for the week
ended Sept. 16, down from last week's sales of 1.27 million tons.

China was again the largest buyer of U.S. soybeans this week,
announcing new purchases of 624,200 tons, according to the
