Market Monitor June 2019

06 Jun 2019

According to the June edition of the AMIS Market Monitor, the upcoming 2019/20 season may be one of the most volatile in recent years. Already, unfavourable weather conditions gripping the US have jeopardised production prospects of maize and soybeans, adding to the uncertainty generated by ongoing trade frictions and related compensatory measures for US farmers. Similarly, the rapid spread of African Swine Fever in China, the world’s largest pork producer and consumer of feed stuffs, is expected to have major implications for international trade flows of AMIS commodities.
