Grains and Markets:

As appears to be the fashion, Brazil is now also exporting soya beans to the US. Market reports indicate that during June 200,000 tons of beans are to go that way.

Saudi Arabia is in the market for at least one Panamax of maize during September, same volume and dates for Indonesia.

Maize harvesting is slightly delayed by rain, but ongoing.

The Buenos Aires Grain Exchange maintain the total volume forecast for 2022/2023 at 36,000,000 tons of maize.

Cargill Bahia Blanca:

Cargill are expanding their port facility in Bahia Blanca.

They will be adding 15,000 tons worth of silo storage, an extra truck discharge facility and a new railway discharge bay to duplicate their present capacity.

Construction is expected to last until March 2025.

Today’s facility can handle an annual volume of 3,200,000 tons per year and this will now increase to 4,500,000 per annum.
