Grains and Markets:

Tunisia is still looking for a Supramax of soya beans in August. Morocco still has not purchased their Panamax of soya meal for July.

Saudi Arabia is testing the market for one or two Panamaxes of maize for September.

Adjusted soya bean harvest total:

The Buenos Aires Grain Exchange has reduced the total yield of the ongoing soya bean harvest to 21,000,000 tons. This means a 53 per cent reduction of the average yield of the last five harvests.

Continued lowering of the total forecast is now calculated on the yields of the fields harvested so far, now 70 per cent completed.
