The US shipped 63,000 mt of wheat to China during the week ending Dec. 17, data from the US Department of Agriculture showed on December 23.

China has been shipping in more than 60,000 mt of wheat every week since November 19, data shows, following a trade pause seen in the months of September and November as buyers awaited US presidential election results.

This brings US wheat exports to China to cross 1.6 million mt in the 2020-21 marketing season, which began on June 1.

Overall, China remains the third largest purchaser of US wheat in 2020-21, with total commitments, according to USDA data, reaching a seven-year high of 2.2 million mt. Outstanding sales and cumulative exports include total commitments.

In recent years, Mexico, the Philippines, and Japan have historically been big buyers of US wheat, but China's demand for grain has been holding the markets busy for months.
