After soybeans futures hit an all-time high on August 30, prices took their steepest dive in the past 18 months this Monday, on news that the American Midwest soybean yield would be better than expected. Heavy rains in Brazil, where farmers are currently beginning to plant their crop, have also contributed to the sell-off. Sill, analysts expect more soybean crops will be planted in Brazil this season than ever before.

In 2010, 64% of Brazil's soybean exports traveled to China, with the next largest supply being 6.1% to Spain, and then 5.8% to Germany.

Sugar

Brazilian cane and beet sugar exports were $14.9 billion in 2011, having risen 78.3% since 2009. Sugarcane has flourished as a crop in Brazil for over 500 years, and Brazil is currently the world's largest producer with 719 million tons harvested in 2010. In that year, Russia received the largest percentage of Brazil's exports, followed by Saudi Arabia, and India, which, coincidentally, is the world's second largest producer of sugar.
