    Argentina expecting a bumper 2018/19 wheat crop of some 20m tons

    A bumper crop would come at a time of shrinking global supplies, with bad weather hurting crops in regions like Europe, Australia, Canada and the Black Sea

    Argentine farmers are finishing this year's wheat sowing, helped by moist soils and cold weather that is prolonging the vegetative stage of crops, raising hopes of high yields and a record harvest, growers and analysts said on Wednesday. Cold Southern Hemisphere winter weather allows seedlings to grow more sprigs per plant. Harvesting starts in November.

    Brazil and Argentina crop problems raise demand for US supplies

    USDA trimmed its 2015/16 Brazil corn harvest outlook by 3.5mmetric tons to 77.50m metric tons and its Brazil soy harvest outlook by 2m metric tons to 97m tons

    Domestic supplies of corn and soybeans will be tighter than expected in the United States as problems with crops in Brazil and Argentina have raised demand for U.S. supplies from overseas buyers, the U.S. Agriculture Department. In its latest monthly supply and demand report, the government cut its new-crop and old-crop ending stocks outlooks for both corn and soybeans by more than analysts had forecast.

    Argentina forecasted to increase wheat area by 25% for a 15/16 million tons crop

    Argentina, the world’s 10th biggest wheat exporter, shipped 3.13 million tons of the grain in the first quarter of 2016 versus 1.53 million in the same 2015 period

    Argentine wheat exports more than doubled in the first quarter, government data showed, as farmers rushed to sell stockpiles ahead of an expected jump in plantings spurred by the open-market policies of new President Mauricio Macri. The surge in Argentine supply is hitting an oversaturated world market and putting downward pressure on wheat prices already near their lowest levels in six years.
