What does the future hold for Argentine soybean oil?
Argentina is the main exporter of soybean oil and the ninth in sunflower oil. In 2016, 4,500 million dollars worth of both products were sold abroad, 8% of national exports. Annually, 8.6 Mt of soybean oil are produced, with 60% of them being exported. Fluctuations in the production, consumption and world trade of all vegetable oils (soy, sunflower, palm, rapeseed, etc.), and their consequent price evolution, have an impact on the Argentine Trade Balance. Therefore, we analyze the panorama for this product, particularly in the case of India, the main customer of Argentine soybean oil.

How is grain production financed in Argentina?
An important issue in Argentina is related to agricultural financing. We have estimated the sources of finance for the planting of the six main crops in the 2016/2017 MY (wheat, soy, corn, sunflower, barley and sorghum). The producers may have needed for the 2016/2017 MY about 10,450 million dollars. 30% of these expenditures would have been covered with own funds (US$3.130 billion) and 70% with third-party-financing (US$7.320 billion). Relevant third-party-financing sources are banks, grain brokers, grain handlers, cooperatives, input suppliers and traders.
