Northern soybean route picks up steam

Soybeans shipped north by truck to the Tapajos river and then barged to Belem
were loaded on a Panamax ship and headed to Spain this week.
Most likely non- GMO soy.

This route is said to be ready to handle 2 million tons in 2015.

8 million tons by 2018.

We need to get a little more asphalt installed in Para state the next 12 months.
With that road in place, trucks should be able to roll north with more ease
than the mud stricken history of the road.

In the time, the basis will inverse in central and northern Mato Grosso.

The port on the Tapajos is a Maggi Group and Bunge JV.
