The new Secretary of Agriculture said that he understands when the field does not liquidate its grains
“This volume would be located $2 billion above of the liquidation of foreign currency in the year 2021, and would be 73% higher than the average income of foreign currency in the Oilseeds and Cereals sector between the years 2018 and 2020, inclusive”, indicates a report from the entity.
According to the BCR, “both in volume and value, agro-industrial exports reached first half of 2022 a historical record”.
At the end of July, the sale of grains by producers was the second highest record in history, with 83.2 million tons, only behind 2019/20 when Argentina achieved its productive record”.
“In global terms, producers have marketed to date a higher volume of grains than that registered at the same time last year, beyond the differences that exist within each product. In other words, it can be verified that, although there is an absolute volume of soybean sales lower than that registered, in tons, at the same time last year, the sales of the rest of the grains more than compensate this difference”, indicates the Bag.
