The article highlights a significant decline in U.S. soybean export sales for the marketing year 2024/25, with figures at their lowest in 19 years at 890.4 thousand tons, which makes up only 1.8% of the USDA's total U.S. soybean export projections for the same period. This is the smallest portion since 1999. Furthermore, the new U.S. soybean crop is expected to approach record levels, yet exporters are struggling to offload new crop stocks, especially to China, marking the first time in 19 years that China has shown no interest in the new U.S. soybean crop. Additionally, 625 thousand tons of soybeans with delivery in MY 2024/25 have been sold, though the destination remains uncertain.
