USDA trimmed their US soybean carryout projection by 5 mbu in the WASDE release this morning, now at 895 mbu. That came from lower imports and higher seed usage. Their Brazil production estimate was raised by 0.5 MMT to 117 MMT on a higher average yield, as they left Argentine output UNCH @ 55 MMT. World ending stocks were raised slightly to 107.36 MMT, reflecting the increase to the South American production.
