Dockage and Foreign Material in the Grading Standards for Wheat Exports

U.S. wheat exports have been compared with that of their export competitors and judged deficient by some importers, who claimed it contained excessive nonwheat material. One suggestion to remedy this problem is to combine dockage and foreign material in wheat grading standards. Estimates of the lost export revenue due to this change range from $5.4 million in treating it as a deductible by weight to $26.75 million for mandated cleaning without resale of screenings.
