The start of a new marketing year began Sept. 1, and the 2016-2017 season begins with good news for soybean growers.
According to the U.S. Soybean Export Council, China is committing to buy $1.8 billion worth of U.S. soybeans in the coming months.
Last year, soybean growers sold a record amount to China, nearly $28 billion worth.
Economists expect the number to be greater this year.
