    BRASILIA, July 2 (Reuters) - Exports of crude oil from
Brazil fell 37 percent to 1.5 million tonnes in June compared
with 2.37 million tonnes a year earlier, Brazil's trade ministry
said on Monday.
    Green coffee exports fell 23 percent to 1.69 million
60-kilogram bags in June, down from 2.2 million bags this time
last year, the data showed. Brazil is the world's largest coffee
producer.    
    Part of the coffee export decline can be explained by the
two-year coffee cycle. The 2011/2012 crop, is the second,
less-abundant year of that cycle.
    Corn exports rose more than tenfold to 134,900 tonnes from
11,800 tonnes.
    Raw sugar exports fell by nearly a third to 1.29 million
tonnes from 1.85 million tonnes a year earlier.
    Shipments of soybeans rose 6.4 percent in June to 4.84
million tonnes versus 4.55 million tonnes a year earlier. Iron
ore exports rose 1.6 percent to 25.9 million tonnes, up from
25.5 million tonnes a year ago, the data showed.
    Brazil is the world's largest producer of sugar and largest
iron ore exporter.
