The Amazon rain forest (R), bordered by deforested land prepared for the planting of soybeans, is pictured in this aerial photo taken over Mato Grosso state in western Brazil, October 4, 2015. Brazil will produce a record 97.8 million tonnes of soybeans in 2015/16, a 3.2 percent rise compared to 2014/15, but much of this additional volume will be stored in the country, with little impact on export volumes, estimated on Monday the Brazilian Association of Vegetable Oil Industries (ABIOVE).
