Aside from trying to reveal what the future holds for beef exports in 2022, expectations for potential measures for wheat and maize in the agricultural sector are rising, and the government is set to announce it at a meeting tomorrow. Between Agriculture Minister Julian Dominguez and the Liaison Board. While the government maintains strong secrecy in this matter, it is known in the private sector that “clear” rules may be set in the future for the sale of balances of two grains abroad.
In meat, last week Agriculture sent to companies in the field a document guaranteeing the export of tariffs to Europe and the United States, in addition to sales to Israel and Chile. The meat of one million bulls and beef, the latter of the D and E varieties – rejected – is the largest buyer for China, the country.
According to the analysis of agricultural companies, this project is against the approximately 800,000 tonnes of exports ending in 2021, which means that exports in 2022 will be about 200,000 tonnes lower than recorded in the current year.
Experts from producers’ organizations are set to discuss the presence of cattle estimated at 53.5 million by the national government at a meeting of agriculture today with the leaders of the liaison table with Dominguez. Companies have more cows than that, which will be able to supply the domestic market and exports by 2022 without tension, the latter without any kind of restrictions on exports..
In this environment, wheat and corn were filtered. What happened was to establish the rules of the game for the future trade of exportable balances, as they expect in the exporting private sector. Today both crops will be taxed at 12% and there will be no announcements of suspension.
In the case of wheat and maize, the balances that can be exported from the editions are established annually and the policy from opening in installments. When he took office, he noted that Dominguez defined wheat, corn and meat as “cultural commodities” last September, and pointed to the “responsible and prudent management of commodity export balances”.
“In policy they will clarify how they plan to define the export balances”. Refers to an industry associated with the export of grains and by-products. Another businessman reported that there were two positions within the government: “Open a little or all at once.”
To take into account, the 2021/2022 Overseas Sales of Wheat (DJVE) Certificates – which are being harvested – have been produced by exporters since mid-October in practice at 9,065,958 tonnes. Last week saw a rise of just 430 tonnes. Meanwhile, the DJVE of corn is registering for the 2021/2022 cycle, which is already 14,135,400 tons of grain.
Agricultural companies are skeptical of what is happening in both wheat and corn, believing there to be indirect government intervention. Last October, when 38.5 million tonnes were reported for the 2020/2021 cycle, the government set new requirements for exporters to prove their purchases of goods for that campaign. Now the DJVE of that last cycle is 39,821,228 tons, which is a record amount.
In this context, the National Representative Committee of the Jundos Bor El Gambio (JxC) last week submitted a draft resolution to Congress on whether the government should intervene in the wheat and corn markets, in addition to which there are officials managing everything. With calls for actors from the business chain.
The initiative includes legislators Alicia Frigones, Pablo Torello, Ingrid Jetter, Monica Fred, Gerardo Cipolini, Claudia Nazole, Gabriella Lena, Gustavo Menna, Hernan Periso, Jorge Warro, Virginia Carnez, and
