As per government data, soybean planting fell 10.4% to 99 lakh hectares compared with the same period last year. Last year, the acreage was 110 lakh hectares. Kharif sowing of soybean fell so far during the period due to a drop in acreage in Madhya Pradesh, the country's largest producer of soybean, as most farmers shifted to more profitable crops such as cotton due to poor returns from oilseeds last year. NCDEX Soybean August futures closed lower last week to fall 2 weeks low tracking  weak international prices and lower edible oil  prices. Soybean futures are expected to trade lower due to steady demand and lower acreage in kharif.
