Tridge summary

The European Commission's latest report forecasts a significant boost in the EU-27's soybean production for the new season, with an expected record output of 3.13 million tons, marking an 11% increase from the previous year and 17% above the average. This growth is attributed to both an expansion in planted acreage and a slight improvement in yields. However, despite this production uptick, the EU's soybean consumption is projected to reach 16.64 million tons, far exceeding its production and thus necessitating substantial imports. The import forecast for the 2024/25 season has been adjusted upwards to 13.51 million tons, with a slight increase in exports to 0.24 million tons. Soybean stock levels are anticipated to remain stable at 1.3 million tons by the season's end.
