Producers from Tucumán, on withholdings on soybeans: "it’s the robbery of the century"

In the field of Tucumán, they look favorably on the value that soy reached in international markets. However, the producers do not hide their dissatisfaction with the high impact of the different charges related to this activity.

The Civil Association of Agricultural Producers and Ranchers of the North (Apronor), which presides Osvaldo Martin, issued a statement to ensure that, despite world prices, “things are not always as they appear.”

“Let’s take the value of soybeans on Tuesday. The ton closed in Chicago at U $ D 585; here, in Argentina, $ 31,750. It seems an interesting number, but it is not. If we convert it to the dollar, Banco Nación currency (94, 98) gives us US $ 334. That is to say: 43% less than the international value! “, The entity listed.

And he warned that, of that amount, “33% correspond to withholdings, and the rest to international freight.”

“That is to say, there is a difference of U $ D 193 less with respect to what a producer from Bolivia, Paraguay or Brazil receives,” the ruralistas from Tucumán compared.

In addition, they explained that other costs have yet to be discounted.

“Let’s continue subtracting: $ 3,500 of freight to port (that is what the Tucumán producers pay; further north, the price increases per kilometer of ton transported), approximately 5% between marketing expenses and tax on debits and credits; in addition, pay all production and input costs, which are priced in dollars and with increases that exceed 30%; and, finally, once all that account is finished, on that poor profitability you have to pay 35% of Profits “, they reproached in Apronor.

In that sense, they insisted with their discomfort over the impact that export taxes have on the sector.

“For all those who defend and rejoice when retentions increase, they should know that between 2002 and 2019 82,119 producers disappeared in the country. And this is not a mere number: they are families who left their villages to go to live in the city and trying to find a source of work, with the uprooting and great sadness that this implies “, indicated the local ruralistas.

And they warned that “the retentions ‘hit’ much more here, in the north” of the country. “We are far from the ports and we have another, climate that condemns us to lower yields than in the core area,” they warned.

Lastly, they did not hide their discomfort over these charges. “This is the robbery of the century, the robbery of Argentine production. Despite the fact that millions of dollars enter the country thanks to our productions, nothing is enough to maintain an idle and obsolete state managed by inoperative ones,” they questioned in Apronor .
