About South America, (mainly Brazil) all I heard last year was how many cargo ships were waiting in line to get loaded. (weeks & even months) We know they can produce beans, and a lot of them. Why isn't the focus more on what their ports can handle and not so much on the amount they produce. What does it matter if they produce 5 billion or 10 billion bushels if their ports can only ship out 4 billion and if buyers can't get supplies when they want or need them.
