Brazil's soybean production to rise
Brazilian farmers will grow 91.8 million tons of soy in the 2013/2014 growing season, an increase from the previous year, consultancy Safras & Mercado said Friday.
Brazil is the world's second-biggest soy producer after the U.S. The Brazilian government and other groups are forecasting a harvest of more than 90 million tons of soy this year, which would be a record.
Safras' forecast is for a 12% increase from the 2013/2013 harvest and is also an increase from Safras' December forecast for 90.9 million tons.
Brazilian crop agency Conab has forecast a soy crop of 90.3 million tons for the 2013/2014 season.
