Soybean harvest projection kept output figure static at 49.5 million mt.

Soybean harvest continued at a solid pace despite heavy rainfall over the last week, leaving just over a third of the area still to be harvested. The average yield of the harvested corn held steady during the week, keeping production on course for 50 million mt. The bean harvest will hit 68.2% complete during the week ending April 30, up nearly 12 points on the week and nearly 9 points ahead of last year’s pace, BAGE said.
