BIMCO: Iran No. 1 Buyer of US Soya Beans

first_imgIran has emerged as the biggest buyer of U.S. soya beans in the aftermath of trade tensions between China and the U.S.Between October and March each year, the US becomes the main source of soybeans for China, with the largest portion of the 35.7 million tons in total that it ships there annually being imported during this period.However, in March, the brewing trade war between the two countries saw China extend its tariffs on imports from the US to several more agricultural products including soya beans.Exports to China are down by 31% for the first eight months of 2018 and by 95% in August alone. During the first eight months of 2018, the US has exported 7.84 million tonnes of soya beans to China. This is down by 3.54 million tonnes from 11.38 million tonnes in the same period in 2017, BIMCO said.In August, only 67,000 tonnes of soya beans have been shipped from the US to China. This is a reduction of 95% year-on-year.There were only four months between January 2016 through to July 2018, that the US exported no more than one 82,000 DWT Panamax dry bulk cargo to Iran. In August 2018, 414,000 tonnes, the equivalent of five Panamax loads of soya beans were shipped to Iran – this amounts to 13.2% of total US soya bean exports in August.“BIMCO anticipated trade lanes to change due to the ongoing trade war between China and the US. But it’s fair to say that Iran’s massive and sudden appetite for US soya beans is very unexcepted and the reason is currently unknown,” BIMCO’s Chief Shipping Analyst Peter Sand comments.“From a shipping perspective it’s vital to have continued exports sent to far away destinations, deploying the many ships in position right now to cater for the seaborne transportation demand.“The Chinese appetite for US soya beans has been muted all year, in absolute as well as relative terms.”Brazil has managed to fill in a portion of Chinese exports during the first eight months of 2018. Brazil exported 50.9 million tonnes of soya beans to China, an increase of 6.8 million tonnes (+15%) from 44.1 million tonnes exported during the first eight months of 2017, BIMCO’s data shows.last_img read more

Meyler to miss Poland friendly

first_img Assistant Marco Tardelli revealed that Everton’s Darron Gibson, who has made himself unavailable for his country since the Euro 2012 finals, had declined an offer to return, but only because he is suffering from a minor problem himself. Aston Villa defender Ciaran Clark and West Brom striker Shane Long did not train in Malahide, but Tardelli revealed both were rested, Clark with a minor knee injury and Long because he played the full 90 minutes of his club’s 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat by Tottenham on Sunday. The Football Association of Ireland later confirmed Leeds midfielder Paul Green has been drafted into the squad following Meyler’s withdrawal. Green will link up with the squad in Portmarnock in time to take part in training at Gannon Park on Tuesday morning. The 23-year-old picked up the injury during his club’s 1-0 win at Millwall on Saturday, in which he scored the decisive goal, and despite reporting for duty with the rest of his international colleagues, has now been sent home. Manager Giovanni Trapattoni will decide on Monday afternoon whether or not to call up a replacement. Hull midfielder David Meyler has been withdrawn from Ireland’s squad for Wednesday’s friendly against Poland after failing to shake off a knee problem.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

THREE AND OUT: Syracuse falls in national championship game, loses to Maryland for 3rd time this season

first_img Published on May 25, 2014 at 10:58 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+ TOWSON, Md. — The game clock had hit zero and Alyssa Murray turned to Kayla Treanor at midfield. She walked over slowly and hugged her.Around them, the Maryland bench players that had been jumping and screaming for the game’s final minute rushed to hug their teammates. The Syracuse bench players solemnly huddled next to Kelsey Richardson in goal.The sea of Maryland fans in the stands celebrated while music blared throughout the stadium.But Treanor and Murray didn’t move an inch.“We just told each other how much we love playing with each other,” Murray said, fighting back more of the tears that had already been streaming down her face. “I know that we all left everything out on the field.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt was a record-breaking season for No. 2-seed Syracuse (22-3, 6-1 Atlantic Coast), the best in program history. The Orange beat 10 teams in the Top 10. Coming into Sunday night’s NCAA championship, the only blemishes on a virtually perfect season were two losses to top-seeded Maryland (23-1, 6-1) — which also defeated the Orange in last year’s final four.In this year’s national title game, the only team that could beat Syracuse did, in a 15-12, back-and-forth battle between the country’s top two teams.“It’s just frustrating anytime you lose,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “You pour your heart into it as a player, coach, everything. You hope for a different outcome. It just wasn’t our day.”Syracuse faced an uphill battle all night.On the game’s first possession, UMD’s Erin Collins cut toward the right of the goal, and found Kristen Lamon, wide open outside the crease. Lamon fired the shot in, then fell to the ground as her teammates gathered around her. With the game 43 seconds old, Maryland led.And 3:37 after that, the lead had reached 5-0. Each goal was the same. A draw control. One shot, a finish, followed by a roar from the partisan Maryland crowd while the Terrapins’ offense celebrated.Syracuse had yet to gather possession, but the game was headed in a familiar direction.“We were fired up and we were ready to go,” Maryland midfielder Taylor Cummings said. “We didn’t want to play with fear.”But once the Orange finally gained possession, the momentum shifted. Murray got the ball in her stick for the first time. The deficit was large and there was a lot of work to do, but she calmly cradled, surveying the defense.She had an offense to run.On the first SU possession, Treanor wrapped a shot around the cage to get one of the goals back. Fifteen minutes later it was Murray scoring unassisted on a drive to the right of the goal to make it 5-4.“We get ourselves back in the game,” Gait said. “You know if you could do it again, you would hope you’d get a different start.”Maryland made its runs. And Syracuse always found an answer. All season, the Orange withstood every run.When the Orange saw a 6-1 lead to Albany get all but erased, SU closed the door in the final minutes. When Loyola had a three-goal lead with fewer than five minutes to go, Syracuse rallied to win in overtime. When Boston College shut down Tewaaraton Award finalists Treanor and Murray, other SU players stepped up to pick up the offensive load.Syracuse had been tested many times this season, but always found a way — except against Maryland. Then, there was nothing the Orange could do.“It’s kind of frustrating that we just lost to Maryland three times,” senior midfielder Katie Webster said. “But just the fact that we beat everybody else is great.”Maryland made the score 15-8 with 11:02 to play. It capped off a 6-1 second-half run. But the Orange still had life.Webster netted two of her three goals to start the rally. Just 1:20 later, Murray raised her arms in celebration after bouncing a shot past Maryland goalie Abbey Clipp. A seven-goal deficit had become 15-12 with 4:21 to go.But the Syracuse punches finally ran out just moments later. After controlling the draw, Kelly Cross threw the ball away.Maryland picked it up, and Syracuse wouldn’t get the ball back on offense the rest of the night.“It’s a game of runs,” Gait said. “And unfortunately their runs were a little too large and too many at once.“As the last seconds ticked off the clock, the Maryland bench players giddily waited to be set loose by the final whistle. But the Syracuse players on the field continued to play lockdown defense.The game was over in almost every sense, but still, the Orange persisted through the end of its historic season.“I have no regrets about the way I played,” Murray said. “I have no regrets about the way my teammates played.“Unfortunately, we just ran out of time.” Commentslast_img read more
