This presentation, derived from the February 20th release of the USDA 2015 U.S. grains and oilseed outlook, examines various factors expected to influence global oilseed markets in the coming year with a focus on U.S. soybean complex supply and demand projections for 2015.

Dear Mr. Bill George, thank your presentation. My question is why the Indonesian bio diesel exports were declined and EU Increased from 2013 to 2014. However rupiah was depreciated to US dollar (strengthening dollar). Does it due to the policies imposed by EU.

Dear Mr. Bill George. Thank you for the information. My question is about the export tax of soybean in the American continent. Given that export tax on oilseeds has a bearing on the cost of oil produced and you are in a region where disparity on export tax on oilseed is wide, do your region ( USA, Brazil & Argentina) oilseed, oils & fats players have regular conflicts and frequently in dialogue. I understand that Argentina has the highest export tax on soybean and that make them a major source of soybean oil for the world. For your comments/views.
