Canada logged its twelfth consecutive month as our top customer with a 10% increase to 34.2 mg (equivalent to 27% of total exports in March). Sales to South Korea spiked 38% to a record high of 25.3 mg (20% of March exports). However, India cut its imports of U.S. ethanol by almost half to 13.7 mg (11% of March exports).
