Soya bean trading in Argentina has accelerated thanks to the Government “bonus” exchange rate offered to farmers. There are rumors that one, two or three Panamax fulls of soybeans were purchased by China. But no confirmation.

The forecasts for both maize and soyabeans are all over the place. Specially considering they are only just staring sowing, but the drought situation is finishing, in certain areas.
