    The uncertain production outlook and the comparatively large forward sales of Peruvian producers, estimated at around 200 Thd T, are likely to limit the pressure on Peruvian export prices for now...

    World Crushings Down at the Start of 2022/23

    Soybean crushings had a slow start worldwide in Sept and Oct, the first two months of the 2022/23 season. They amounted to about 52 Mn T, according to our estimates, a 3-year low and 0.4 Mn T below a year earlier. The biggest decline of 1.2 Mn T on the year occurred in Argentina. Reductions were also noted in the European Union...

    Ample World Supplies of Soybeans and Rapeseed Expected in 2022/23

    A global production surplus of 14.2 Mn T is currently anticipated for 7 major oilseeds in 2022/23. For soybeans and rapeseed & canola we currently expect surpluses of 12.9 and 3.3 Mn T, despite pronounced increases in crushings... As against this, production deficits are likely to occur in sunflowerseed and groundnuts...
