Agriculture registered an inter-annual fall of 10.5% in foreign exchange settlements

The liquidation of foreign currency in agriculture registered an inter-annual fall of 10.5% in the first seven months of the year, with a total of $11.6 billion, against $12.9 billion obtained in the same period of the previous year. This decline is explained by the fall in international prices of the main crops, the increase in shipments of soybeans, to the detriment of products with higher added value such as oils and flours.
