Argentina’s crop exports surged $2 billion in the last three weeks of the year after restrictions were scrapped by the new president, according to exporter group Ciara-Cec.

Farmers sold $752 million worth of grains and oil-seeds in the last three days of 2015 for an annual total of $20 billion, down 17 percent from a year earlier. Sales in the last few days of the year were almost double the amount of grains and oilseed shipped abroad in the entire month of November.
