Post maintains the 2018/19 marketing year (MY) forecast of just over 36 million hectares (ha) of area planted, but the soybean production forecast is reduced to 115.5 million metric tons (mmt).

Post cut the export forecast to 70 mmt for 2018/19 MY, which is a 16 percent reduction on the current season’s projected blockbuster exports of 84 mmt.
