Tridge summary

Brazil's soybean production is expected to fall by 4% this year, reaching nearly 153.8 million tons, as reported by Abiove, due to adverse weather impacting sowing. This represents a 6.5 million ton decrease from the previous record harvest. As a result, exports of soybeans and their derivatives are predicted to drop, with soybean exports alone forecasted to decrease to 97.8 million tons from 101.86 million tons. Additionally, exports of soybean meal and oil are expected to decline. Despite this, domestic oil consumption is set to rise by one million tons to 9.7 million tons, largely due to an increased mandate for biodiesel production.
