Wheat blocks Indian ports

Soybean meal shipments from India have slowed as arrival of imported wheat and fertilizer has caused congestion at two of the country's biggest ports, said exporters and port officials.

About two-thirds of the soybean meal is exported through Kandla, the country's third busiest port. Now that hundreds of thousand tonnes of meal have piled up at Kandla and Mundra ports in the western Gujarat state, India might lose the market to South American suppliers.
About 250,000 tonnes of meal, used to make animal feed, was shipped out of India last month, a fifth of the quantity meant to be exported.
