According to a Reuters report, at least 45 ships delayed in Argentina, unable to load, due to a week-old strike that is delaying
shipments from one of the world's biggest food suppliers. Argentina is a leading exporter of soy, corn and wheat. The pay dispute has reportedly brought soy-processing plants to a near standstill and dozens of boats and ships have been unable to load
their cargoes at ports near the central city of Rosario.   (Source: Reuters)
