BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Soybean sales from Argentina’s 2021/2022 harvest covered 80.6% of the 44 million tonne harvest as of last week, below the 82.6% sold from the previous season at the same time, data from its agricultural ministry showed Wednesday.
Between Jan. 12-18, producers sold 42,000 tonnes of soy, one of the lowest weekly volumes reported in recent months.
Producers have sold 76.3% of Argentina’s 2021/2022 59 million tonne corn harvest, the ministry said Tuesday, below the 78.5% sold from the previous season in the same period.
Producers have also sold 51.8% of Argentina’s 2022/2023 wheat campaign, which the government has projected at just 13.4 million tonnes due to drought.
