FILE - In this April 12, 2018 file photo, packets of raw soybeans are placed on a table at a U.S. soybean company's booth at the international soybean exhibition in Shanghai, China.

At the same time, farmers in China are being encouraged to plant more soy, apparently to help make up for any shortfall from the United States. (AP Photo/Andy Wong, File)
