   华盛顿7月28日消息:美国农业部海外农业局发布的参赞报告显示,2022/23年度阿根廷高粱产量预计为360万吨,比美国农业部的预测低了20万吨,因为播种面积和单产下降。

 
Recently, China’s interest in Argentine sorghum has weakened, but the price of sorghum is still very attractive. The production cost of sorghum is far lower than that of corn. The seed company said that due to the bad weather in summer, the supply of sorghum seeds in 2022/23 may be limited.
 
The counselor estimated that the export of sorghum from Argentina in 2022/23 was 1.65 million tons, 850000 tons lower than the prediction of the U.S. Department of agriculture. Traders report that China has slowed imports. So far, the Argentine government has not issued any export certificates for 2022/23.
 
The counselor estimated that the export of Sorghum in 2021/22 was 1.5 million tons, 900000 tons lower than the prediction of the U.S. Department of agriculture. So far, the Argentine government has issued a total of 1.3 million tons of sorghum export licenses in 2021/22, including 120000 tons in August and 10000 tons in September, and has not been exported since then.
 
The decrease in exports in 2021/22 and 2022/23 will release more sorghum supply for the domestic market.
