- July 13 - USDA announced export sales of 121,927 MT of US corn to Mexico for delivery during the 2015/16 (91,445 MT) and 2016/17 (30,482 MT)

- European Commission estimated 2015/16 EU corn crop at 68.4 MMT down 12.1% from 2014/15 record crop (77.8 MMT)

- European Commission estimated 2015/16 EU barley crop at 58.1 MMT vs. 60.2 MMT in 2014/15

- USDA, in Friday's report, kept its US corn and soy yield forecasts unchanged from June, surprising some analysts who had expected lower estimates due to the wet weather. Old-crop US corn ending stocks were cut to 1.779 billion bushels from 1.876 billion due to increased demand from the export and feed sector. The average analyst forecast was 1.811 BB. New-crop US corn ending stocks were cut to 1.599 BB from 1.771 BB in June but above the average trade forecast of 1.54 BB

- USDA projected global corn production in 2015/16 at 987.1 MMT down 2.2 MMT from previous estimate and vs. 1,001.7 MMT in 2014/15, as smaller crops in the United States and the EU more than offset higher production in Brazil and China. Global trade is higher on stronger demand from the EU

- USDA lowered 2015/16 world corn inventories to 189.95 MMT from June estimate of 195.19 MMT and vs. average expectation of 192.96 MMT, and below last year's stocks of 193.95 MMT
