(Reuters) – Commodities trader Cargill Inc [CARG.UL] reported a 41% slump in adjusted quarterly profit on Thursday, as the U.S.-China trade war led to supply disruptions and flooding in the central United States hit marketing and transportation of grains.

The privately held company’s adjusted operating profit fell to $476 million in the fourth quarter ended May 31 compared with $809 million a year earlier.
