    SAO PAULO, July 1 (Reuters) - Brazil's exports of coffee,
iron ore and soybeans eased in June while shipments of raw sugar
picked up, monthly data from the trade ministry showed on
    Brazil exported 6.9 million tonnes of soybeans in June
versus 7.6 million tonnes in May. Exports of the oilseed have
been easing from the record 8.3 million tonnes shipped abroad in
April now that harvesting has ended.
    Coffee exports also eased slightly to 2.62 million bags from
2.69 million bags in May. The 2014 coffee crop is between 35 and
40 percent harvested according to the National Coffee Council
but will take time to make its way to the ports.
    Brazil exported just 87,600 tonnes of corn in June, the
smallest amount in three years. Brazil briefly surpassed
Argentina as the world's No. 2 corn exporter last year but is
expected to slide back into third place this year.    
    Brazil is the world's top exporter of sugar, coffee, and
orange juice and may surpass the United States as top soybean
producer next season. The country posted on Tuesday a trade
surplus of $2.365 billion in June, the highest result this year.
