Glencore seen paying up to US$6 billion in possible Bunge deal

Glencore seen paying up to US$6 billion in possible Bunge deal | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar ) | Scoop.it
London | Reuters -- Miner and trader Glencore may pay up to US$6 billion in cash in a possible tie-up with U.S. grains trader Bunge based on current valuations, Moody's ratings agency said on Friday, but said it did not expect an outright acquisition. Glencore said this week it had made an informal approach to discuss "a possible consensual business combination," but offered few details about what that would involve. Bunge said it was not in talks with Glencore. Glencore CEO Ivan Glasenberg said his company wanted to expand its agriculture business via Glencore Agriculture, which is a partnership between the London-listed mining company and two Canadian funds. "Should the transaction happen, we think the most likely combination would be between Glencore Agriculture Limited and Bunge, with Glencore maintaining a sizeable stake of up to 50 per cent in the combined entity," Elena Nadtotchi, vice-president and lead analyst for Glencore at Moody's, said in a…

When Should We Start Paying Attention to Crop Condition Ratings for Corn and Soybeans?

When Should We Start Paying Attention to Crop Condition Ratings for Corn and Soybeans? | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar ) | Scoop.it
The USDA will report crop condition ratings for the 2017 U.S corn and soybean crops in the 18 major producing states in the weekly Crop Progress report beginning May 30 and continuing until harvest. Weekly crop condition ratings have been made for all the major producing states since 1986. Market participants typically follow the crop condition ratings closely as an indication of crop health, yield potential, and change in yield potential as the growing season proceeds. Recent research documents that these ratings indeed have a substantial market impact during the growing season.

Atlantic Hurricane Season May Bring More Storms Than Normal

Atlantic Hurricane Season May Bring More Storms Than Normal | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar ) | Scoop.it

By Brian K. Sullivan (Bloomberg) — The Atlantic hurricane season will likely churn out an above-average 11 to 17 named storms, in part due to fading odds than an El Nino will form in the Pacific. Of storms that emerge during the six-month season that begins June 1, five to nine will reach hurricane strength with winds of 74 miles (119 kilometers) per hour, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Thursday. Two to four may become major systems reaching Category 3 or stronger on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale. 


 The Earth’s most powerful storms can threaten lives, destroy property and move global energy and agricultural markets. An estimated $28.3 trillion worth of homes, businesses and infrastructure is vulnerable to hurricane strikes in the 18 U.S. Atlantic coastal states, according to the Insurance Information Institute in New York.

NPPC White Paper Details Benefits Of NAFTA

NPPC White Paper Details Benefits Of NAFTA | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar ) | Scoop.it

New documents released by the National Pork Producers Council Thursday show the benefits of the North American Free Trade Agreement to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. NPPC released a white paper that focuses primarily on trade with Mexico and makes the case for not abandoning the 23-year-old pact. The paper also argues against disrupting trade in sectors for which the agreement has worked well, including U.S. pork. Mexico is the number two export market for U.S. pork, and Canada is number four. For all U.S. goods and services, Canada and Mexico are the top two destinations, accounting for more than one-third of total U.S. exports, adding $80 billion to the U.S. economy and supporting more than 14 million American jobs. For U.S. agriculture, Canada and Mexico are the second and third largest foreign markets. They imported more than $38 billion of U.S. products in 2016, or 28 percent of all U.S. agricultural exports. Those exports generated more than $48 billion in additional business activity throughout the economy and supported nearly 287,000 jobs.

How the transgenic petunia carnage of 2017 began

How the transgenic petunia carnage of 2017 began | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar ) | Scoop.it

Two years ago, plant biologist Teemu Teeri was walking by a train station in Helsinki when he noticed some vivid orange petunias in a planter. The flowers reminded Teeri, who has studied plant pigments at the University of Helsinki, of blooms created in a landmark gene-engineering experiment some 30 years earlier. As far as he knew, those flowers never made it to market. But he was curious, and he stuck a stem in his backpack. 


 Now, that chance encounter has ended up forcing flower sellers on two continents to destroy vast numbers of petunias. Teeri ultimately confirmed that the plants contained foreign DNA, and he tipped off regulators in Europe and the United States, who have identified other commercial strains that are genetically engineered (GE). Although officials say the GE petunias pose no threat to human health or the environment—and likely were unknowingly sold for years—they’ve asked sellers to destroy the flowers, because it’s illegal to sell them in the United States and Europe without a permit. 


 Ironically, proposed revisions to U.S. biotechnology rules now under discussion might have exempted the harmless petunias from regulation. But the petunia carnage highlights the growing complexity of regulating GE plants, which have a long history of showing up where they aren’t allowed and can be hard to track.

the Pacific Ocean. 


 Last winter, a pool of cool water set up next to a warm patch across the northern Pacific, said Paul Pastelok, lead long range forecaster at AccuWeather Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania. “This led to an avenue for storms that came off the East Asian coast. Instead of dying out, they traveled along that avenue and maintained their strength.” It’s the same phenomenon that delivered a warm winter and ended California’s unprecedented drought.

China writes 117-page wish list for `win-win' U.S. trade ties

China writes 117-page wish list for `win-win' U.S. trade ties | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar ) | Scoop.it

The government wants to beef up infrastructure cooperation with the U.S. and accept greater imports of goods ranging from soybeans to aircraft, according to a 117-page document released by the Ministry of Commerce on Thursday. 


The report also recognizes the Trump administration’s grievances with China and globalization, urging “balanced development” of ties from now on. A deal earlier this month to promote Chinese access for U.S. natural gas, financial services and beef was hailed as an “early harvest” in a 100-day review of the bilateral trade relationship -- characterized by a 2016 U.S. deficit of $347 billion -- that’s due to wrap up in July. Thursday’s report could yield a further thaw in links between the two, which had been tested by the China-baiting stance taken by President Trump during his election campaign.

United States Drought Monitor > US Drought Monitor May 23 2017 | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar ) | Scoop.it
Soaking precipitation occurred from central portions of the Rockies and Plains into the upper Midwest, mainly from May 16-18, and in parts of the Southeast starting on May 20. Drought-affected areas of the Southeast, including portions of Alabama and Georgia, experienced substantial relief, with rain still falling when the drought-monitoring period ended on May 23. The drought-easing effects of any rain that fell after 8 am EDT on Tuesday, May 23, will be reflected on next week’s map. Farther west, late-season snow (locally 1 to 3 feet) blanketed the northern and central Rockies, while streaks of heavy rain largely arrested drought development in the south-central U.S. Areas that remained stubbornly dry included parts of the north-central U.S. and Florida’s peninsula, although significant rainfall developed in the latter region after the monitoring period ended on May 23.

As the U.S. Sends More Oil to World, OPEC Sends Less to U.S.

As the U.S. Sends More Oil to World, OPEC Sends Less to U.S. | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar ) | Scoop.it

By Serene Cheong (Bloomberg) — OPEC is finally making the move that could help complete a mission that it’s failed so far: shipping less oil to the U.S., according to Sanford C. Bernstein. Exports from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to America have declined by close to 1 million barrels a day since a peak at the end of March, Bernstein analysts including Neil Beveridge wrote in a May 25 report. The group, including top producer Saudi Arabia, understands that reducing cargoes to the U.S. is the top priority if it’s to reach the goal of shrinking a global inventory glut, they said. OPEC is curbing its supplies just as the U.S. threatens to eat into the group’s market share in its traditional strongholds such as Asia, the world’s biggest oil consuming region. The group’s problems have also been compounded by a spike in shipments to developed nations at the end of last year, just before a six-month output cut deal with some allies including Russia went into effect in January. That means global inventories have increased rather than shrunk since the curbs were announced, according to Bernstein.

Becoming a big force in agriculture is as easy as one, two, three. At least, so Ivan Glasenberg may hope.

Glencore's part-owned ag business, Glencore Agriculture, has made an "informal approach" to Bunge, one of the "ABCD" group of big traders in the industry. And he is doing so in three steps.
