Exchange@

BUENOS AIRES, May 16 (Reuters) - Argentine farmers are expected to harvest 56 million tonnes of soy for the 2018/19 season, the Buenos Aires Grains Exchange said on Thursday, citing stronger-than-expected crop yields as the reason for slightly raising its previous estimate of 55 million tonnes.

The exchange said 76.7% of the planting area was already yielding crops.
