Soybeans are big export crop

When U.S. farmers are asked which country is the chief export competitor for soybeans with the U.S. they almost always say Brazil. That’s because we always hear about how many acres of soybeans are planted in Brazil and how big its soybean production is. But that’s not the case. Argentina’s combined exports of soybeans, soybean meal and soybean oil last year will total 41 million tons compared to 38.6 for Brazil.
