PORT OF VANCOUVER, WA, GRAIN INSPECTIONS RESUME
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

Grain inspections have resumed at the Port of Vancouver in Washington State following settlement of an ongoing labor dispute.

United Grain Corporation and the International Longshore & Warehouse Union came to a tentative agreement earlier this week on a nearly two-year long labor dispute. Inspectors from the Washington Department of Agriculture resumed grain inspections at the port on Tuesday.

The restarting of inspections has eased concerns of Pacific Northwest wheat growers, grain elevators and foreign buyers. Soybeans and corn also were affected.
