Rain prevented shipments of grain per 310 hours of Paranagu√° in March

The rains paralyzed shipments of grain at the port of Paranagu√°, one of the most important in the country, for a total of 310 hours over the month of March, the port authority said on Monday. The stoppage, which totaled almost 13 days in March, helped to reduce the volume of soybeans shipped by Brazil last month. Exports were 16.5 percent above March 2012, despite a large volume of soybeans coming to the terminals and a large international demand.
