The USDA lowered its forecast for global oilseed production, but raised its estimate of Final stocks

The decrease in the estimated yield of canola in Canada by 1 million tons and sunflower in Ukraine by 0.5 million tons and Russia by 0.5 million tons compensates for the increase in the soybean crop in the United States by 2 million tons.
Due to a decrease in the processing margin in China, the forecast for global processing was lowered by 2 million tons to 526.23 million tons (508.34 million tons in 2020/21 MG). After raising the estimate of initial reserves from 109.68 to 113.32 million tons due to a decrease in consumption in 2020/21 MG, the forecast of Final reserves was also increased by 5.25 million tons to 116.5 million tons.

- consumption forecast reduced by 1.1 million tons to 377.27 million tons (362.56 million tons in my 2020/21),
- the forecast for final reserves was raised by 5.68 million tons to 104.57 million tons, including 3.67 million tons for the United States.
For the United States, due to an increase in soybean yield estimates from 50.6 to 51.5 bushels/acre (50.2 bushels/acre in 2020/21 MG), the production forecast was raised to 121.06 million tons, which is 6.31 million tons higher than last year.
For China, the estimate of initial and final reserves was increased by 0.9 million tons due to a reduction in the volume of processing in 2020/21 MG by 1 million tons to 93 million tons, which in the current season may amount to 98 million tons.
