Paraguay: Oilseeds and Products Annual

Commodities

2017/18 area is expected to decline almost three percent to 3.35 million hectares due to a fall in Zafrina (2nd crop soybean) area. Yields are not forecast to reach the record levels of the present season, but are expected to be above average at 2.8 tons per hectare resulting in production at 9.4 million tons. 2017/18 soybean exports and crush are forecast to decline to 5.6 and 3.8 million tons, respectively, due to lower supplies. Production for 2016/17 is increased to 10.2 million tons due to elevated crop area and record yields – supported by good weather throughout the season.
