Analysts noted that these data were better-than-expected and prompted the expectations that ampler demand for U.S. corn and wheat in the near future, supporting corn and wheat higher on Thursday.

The USDA said in another report Thursday that private exporters reported export sales of 210,000 tons of corn for delivery to Saudi Arabia during the 2015/2016 marketing year, putting additional support on corn.

As for the soybeans, the USDA's weekly export sales report rated soybean net sales at 212,400 tons for the week of May 5, down 74 percent from the previous week and 54 percent from the prior 4-week average.
