Tridge summary

In April 2024, Brazil experienced a significant decline in its unground corn exports, with volumes dropping to 34,235.7 tons, a mere 7.27% of the previous year's exports for the same month. This represents a 91.3% decrease in the daily average shipments compared to April 2023. Despite this sharp decline, market analyst Ruan Sene from Grão Direto views the situation as not alarming, noting that the market has recovered from worse starts in the past. Additionally, revenue from corn exports saw an 88.5% decrease in daily average revenue year-over-year. However, the silver lining is the 31.5% increase in the average price per ton of Brazilian corn from April 2023 to April 2024, indicating a potential for recovery in the market.
