Brazil August soybean, corn exports seen rising 33%
BRASILIA, Aug 4 (Reuters) - Brazil will export 6.72 million tonnes of soybeans and 6.32 million tonnes of corn in August, according to the country’s National Grains Exporter Association (ANEC) in its first estimate for the month.
That would be a 33% increase for soybeans over the same month last year. Corn exports would also be 33% higher, although less than projected earlier by the association.
July soybean exports were 8.02 million tonnes, ANEC said, below a projected 8.4 million tonnes.
Corn exports in July were 5.07 million tonnes, also below an earlier projection of 5.4 million tonnes, the association said.
Soy meal exports will reach 1.49 million tonnes in August, ANEC said. (Reporting by Nayara Figueiredo. Editing by Tom Hogue.)
