Brazil's soybean exports are likely to climb in April from March, with harvesting of the oilseed in the world's No. 2 grower now nearing completion, according to port shipping schedules and comments from analysts.

Exports are likely to reach around 5 million tonnes this month, an increase of about 1 million tonnes over March, according to the shipping line-up detailing quantities of soy vessels will load. That is roughly the same as in April 2011.
