Tridge summary

The US Department of Agriculture has updated its global oilseed crop forecast for the 2023-24 agricultural year, lowering the estimate slightly to 658.5 million tons, which is still an increase from the previous year by 21.3 million tons. This revision accounts for a decrease in sunflower and soybean production due to adverse weather and the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine, although an increase in rapeseed production partially offsets these losses.
