U.S. Soybean Stocks Getting Worked Down by Record Demand

In USDA’s Prospective Plantings report on March 31, farmers indicated that they would plant 84.6 million acres of soybeans in 2015/16, as less corn and cotton are planted this year than in 2014/15. U.S. planting intentions for sunflowerseed this year are up 14 percent over last year to 1.786 million acres. U.S. intended acreage for peanuts in 2015/16 is up 9 percent to 1.481 million acres. In contrast, U.S. acreage intentions this year for canola are down 9 percent to 1.554 million acres and for cotton, down 13 percent to 9.55 million acres.

Global soybean production for 2014/15 is forecast 407,000 metric tons higher from last month (to 315.5 million). Argentine soybean production for 2014/15 was forecast 1 million tons higher from last month to a record 57 million due to high soybean yields in areas untouched by February flooding. USDA lowered its 2014/15 soybean production estimate for India this month by 700,000 tons to 9.8 million.
