Americas Soybeans: have suppliers overestimated global demand?

US-China trade war, African Swine Fever, weather, currency fluctuations … the global soybean market has more than its share of supply and demand influencers at the moment. In the US record high soybean stocks remain, however the new crop harvest is fast approaching and focus has turned to yield and crop quality. While in Brazil after a substantial 2019 crop farmers are now turning to planting intentions for the next crop in Q1 2020.

Join Sophie Byron, Associate Director of pricing for Americas Agriculture, Peter Meyer, Head of Grain and Oilseed Analytics, Gustavo Bonato, Managing Editor for Latin America grains and oilseeds and Luke Lundgren US soybean pricing specialist on October 8, 2019 for a Webinar focused on US and Brazil soybean markets and prices.

  • How are Brazilian Real and Argentine Peso fluctuations impacting farmers?

  • How are US prices evolving in the run-up to the new crop?

  • What does the US crop tour tell us?
