Argentinian exports of corn, wheat and soybeans fell 20,341 Mt, or 16%, in May versus to April. The drop compares to an increase of 6% in the same month a year ago. Corn accounted for the bulk of the decline, with exports falling by 33,568 Mt on the month. That was countered by an increase in soybean exports of 13,133 Mt, and a gain in wheat of 28 Mt. The two worker strikes at the port of Rosario, along with low water levels in the Parana River, were largely to blame for the drop in May exports.
