Argentina’s Soybean Estimate Plummets 7 Million Tons

4/11/18 USDA April WASDE Report
( Wikipedia via Public Domain )

The USDA released its April World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE), which reflects serious drought problems that are plaguing the Argentina soybean crop.

The USDA lowered its estimate for Argentina’s soybean crop by 7 million tons to 40 million tons because of reduced harvested area and yield.

Between January and March, drought hit the South American country in the prime growing months, while to the north, parts of Brazil received above average rainfall.

While the soybean production number is lower, it’s offset by higher production in Brazil. The USDA expects Brazilian farmers will producer 115 million tons, setting a new record.

Prior to the report, the USDA issued a statement confirming 120,000 metric tons of U.S. soybeans headed to Argentina, the largest purchase in two decades and the first sale to Argentina since the 2008/09 season.

Hello Every One, My Name is Trevor Cohen live in Texas and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now. I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my freinds but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via:
