WASDE Supply and Demand Update: July 2020

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report helps to provide a common, timely, and unbiased understanding of current agricultural conditions with a globally comprehensive look at key agricultural markets.

The U.S. Soybean Export Council’s (USSEC) new webcast aims to provide a deep dive each month into the most recent WASDE. This month, USSEC CEO Jim Sutter, Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS) Administrator Ken Isley, RJ O’Brien Head of Market Insight Randy Mittelstaedt, and USSEC Regional Director – Greater China Zhang Xiaoping joined me to provide perspective on the July 2020 WASDE.

During this virtual event, I presented the following slides to offer insight into the U.S. soy complex for the current (19/20) and upcoming (20/21) marketing years. As illustrated in the slides, overall demand for U.S. Soy remains strong both domestically and internationally. Exports and their continued growth are critical for the U.S. soy complex; currently, nearly 60 percent of U.S. soy products are exported. Long-term demand growth continues at a strong pace and U.S. Soy is well-positioned to serve the global market.
