Evening Edition | Thursday, July 14, 2022

In tonight's Evening Edition, catch up on the news about Brazil corn exports, grain deals and a deadly strike in Ukraine, and trait packages for corn and soybeans.

Brazil Corn Exports

Brazilian corn may only be shipped to China next year because of demands made by Beijing regarding trade protocols being put in place, an agriculture ministry official was quoted as saying in Valor Economico newspaper on Thursday.

Jose Guilherme Leal, agriculture defense secretary at the ministry, said the Chinese requested the monitoring of some weeds and fungi in corn crops, calling it a common request in negotiations of sanitary agreements and protocols.

News from Ukraine

Russian missiles struck the Ukrainian city of Vinnytsia far behind the frontlines on Thursday in an attack, which Ukrainian officials said had left at least 12 people dead, including a small child.

The strike, which Ukraine said had also wounded dozens, came a day after a breakthrough in talks between Moscow and Kyiv to unblock Ukrainian grain exports and underscored how far the two countries remain from any kind of peace settlement despite progress in those negotiations.

The United States on Thursday sought to facilitate Russian food and fertilizer exports by reassuring banks, shipping and insurance companies that such transactions would not breach Washington's sanctions on Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine.

Enabling those Russian exports is a key part of attempts by the United Nations and Turkish officials to broker a package deal with Moscow that would also allow for shipments of Ukraine grain from the Black Sea port of Odesa, which have been blockaded by the war.

Corn and Soybean Traits

Corteva announces new advancements for above-ground pest control products in corn and large-scale availability of A-Series Enlist E3 soybeans for 2023.

PowerCore Enlist corn, as both structured refuge and integrated Refuge Advanced options, is stacked with three modes of action for enhanced control over the toughest above-ground pests, including susceptible European corn borer, fall armyworm, southwestern corn borer and corn earworm.

Demand for a performance boost in Enlist E3 soybeans has increased over the years and Corteva has responded. In 2021, A-Series soybeans delivered a three bushels-per-acre yield advantage against all competitors.
