The soy market in Argentina's pivotal grains hub was virtually paralyzed for the fourth day on Thursday as most exporters refrained from purchases in a bid to pressure the government to resolve a nearly three-week long strike among crushing workers.
Wheat growers who grow both pea and wheat in their fields are likely to lessen the economic risks of farming while maintaining the same level of profits as those who grow only wheat or leave a field fallow, according to a group of Montana State University scientists.
BUENOS AIRES - Argentina's grains hub of Rosario was paralyzed on Thursday by the second day of pay strikes by unions representing stevedores and other workers needed to dock and load recently-harvested soy and corn, union and management spokesmen said.

Vigilance more important with return of higher temperatures With spring planting creeping closer, area farmers are concentrating on the 2012 crop. But they should give a little attention to stored grain from last year’s crop, a North Dakota State University Extension Service official says.
The corn market gained 25 cents last week with the strength in the wheat market. Rumors that Russia may put a tax on wheat exports and may even ban exports supported the wheat market which spilled over to corn. The strengthening export demand and a firming cash basis also offered support last week.
Corn started last week trading with strength due to continued weather concerns in South America, primarily Argentina. But the gains were short-lived once USDA’s reports were released.
