Soybean Exports Might Approach 2 Billion Bushels

Although USDA projects U.S. soybean exports of 1.77 billion bushels for the 2014/15 marketing year, some think that figure could be higher.

Specifically, Kohake thinks export volume of about 1.8 billion or 1.9 billion bushels is likely.

“I think we keep a very, very strong pace,” he says.

Meanwhile, he expects new-crop soybean prices to top out between $10 and $10.80.

“I think we’re very close to probably seeing a balance here right now close to down around the $9.40 area,” Kohake adds.
