    Imports of Soybeans and Soya Meal On the Rise

    The sharp increase in imports of soybeans & soya meal in July/Sept 2018 is likely to raise domestic consumption of the two products but might also promote a replenishment of stocks after they had been reduced by the end of the preceding quarter...

    Flaxseed has lost attractiveness for farmers in North America with both Canada and the US indicating pronounced reductions of plantings this year. The 2018/19 supply tightness in North America is compounded by the reduction of flaxseed carry-over stocks. Both in Canada and the US they were reported at a three-year low...
