A weaker tone prevailed across world maize markets in August against a backdrop of ample global availabilities. With advances in Brazil outweighed by declines at other main origins, the IGC GOI maize sub-Index was down by 2 percent m/m. US quotations eased on improved domestic production prospects and robust competition for export business from South America. However, hurricane-related logistical problems at US Gulf ports helped to limit overall declines. With export prices in South America underpinned by reluctant farmer selling, the price spread between Brazil and the US narrowed over the month.
