Corn exports all over the EU have been happening at the fastest pace in at least seven years, according to reports, as the bigger crops in France and Romania in particular have hurt prices and made exports attractive to overseas buyers. Corn futures in Paris have dropped 11% in the last two months. EU corn export commitments from July 1 to November 1 came to 1.1 million metric tons, compared with just 362,000 metric tons during the same time in 2010, according to the European Commission.
