What does not happen in IndiaOver the next few months I suggest you may want toadvise soybean and soy meal buyers in your regionthat they should consider locking in new-croppurchases from the U.S. to make sure they will getthe supplies they need as well to avoid the potentialof higher prices in the fall and winter. They do notwant to get caught short of their needs or having topay high prices if the U.S. crop is poor
