The state grain buying agency in China, Sinograin, will likely miss their target of buying up to 6 million tonnes of soybeans and 40 million tonnes of corn for state reserves. China has been trying to support domestic farmer's income by buying the crops, but light farmer selling will likely keep the government from reaching those levels. For soybeans, farmers have had a hard time meeting government's soybean requirements as many were unable to dry soybeans down enough to meet strict moistures requirements. The company had bought 3.5 million tonnes of soybeans and 27 million tonnes of corn from farmers by the end of February. Sinograin helps control grain prices by buying grain during the harvest and then selling back to the market when crops run short and prices start to rally. Sinograin has built up reserves of imported soybeans. The company has also built up reserves of imported soybeans.
