Dec 14 (Reuters) - Indian soybean futures rose on Wednesday after industry officials said soymeal exports were likely to jump to three-year highs in 2016/17.
The most-actively January soybean contract on the National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange Ltd (NCDEX) rose 0.7 percent in heavy trading to 3,090 rupees ($45.80) per 100 kg.
Higher exports from India could trim shipments of South American soymeal into Asia, and also shore up local soybean prices, which fell below a government-fixed support level in physical markets recently.
