The price of soybeans seems to be trending upward following speculation on corn exports during the final two months of 2011. Corn fell to a two-month low on the speculation that the global production is rising and reduced overseas demand for the crop from the U.S. The country is still the world's largest export of corn, although, soybeans are on the rise.

Other countries, such as Australia and Brazil, have continued to increase output in corn harvests. Brazil is the third largest exporter in the world will raise 18 percent for a record. Meanwhile, Zambia has given permission for its Food Reserve Agency to export a record 1 million tons of corn this season.

Experts say the grain market is reaching a bearish supply outlook as corn futures have declined all year. In March, corn delivery declined 0.5 percent to $.8825 a bushel. In December, it touched $5.80, the lowest since October. This price has dropped for four straight sessions as overseas buyers shifted to the cheaper supplies around the world.
Meanwhile, soybeans have seen an impressive increase. Delivery of soybeans has rose 0.2 percent to $11.28 a bushel, bouncing back from a 13-month low of $11.0275 in November.

Corn is still the biggest U.S. crop, which is valued at $66.7 billion in 2010 and soybeans is a distant second at $38.9 billion.
