since early 2012 reflects the legacy of the years 2007-
2012 when palm oil prices were exceptionally high at an
average US-$/T 924 (cif Rotterdam) and more than

World Oilseed Supplies Still Likely to Rise by 28 Mn T
in 2013/14, Despite US Crop Losses...
Despite the downward revision by 3.1 Mn T in US oilseed production, world supplies of
10 oilseeds will still be sufficiently large at 559.5 Mn T in 2013/14, according to latest OIL
WORLD estimates which are based on the assumption of normal weather conditions in
South America in the next few months. At our new estimate world supplies are establishing
a new record, implying an increase of 28.1 Mn T from 2012/13.
World oilseed stocks at the start of the world crop season 2013/14 are now estimated at
74.6 Mn T (up 7.1 Mn T from the unusually low level of a year earlier), of which soybeans
62.3 Mn T (up 7.3 Mn T).
World production of 10 oilseeds is expected to rise sharply by 21.1 Mn T to a new high
of 484.9 Mn T. The resulting increase in supplies is more than sufficient to satisfy the
prospective demand from the global crushing industry...
