Argentina is the world's third-largest soybean producer after the U.S. and Brazil. Last month, Argentine farmers went on strike to overturn a sharply higher export tax on soybeans and other products. On Friday, Argentina's government failed to resolve the farmers' dispute over export taxes, raising concerns of more protests that could slow grain shipments. As a result, Soybean futures surged 50 cents a bushel.
