Keep up with the South America Crop Watch

Agriculture.com Staff 01/15/2007 @ 7:46am

During the next few weeks, I will be traveling through South America's major soybean production areas. The aim is to learn about the state of agriculture in Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

Because the U.S. producer operates in a global market, what happens in South America can affect the future of U.S. competitiveness in world soybean sales. In addition, South America continues to become a major world competitor in alternative fuel production.

With South America's soybean crop in its critical growth stage, an update on its health and size should becoming into focus.

Also, I'll take a look at how a recent farm crisis has affected soybean producers in Brazil, and what their future plans are for soybean plantings. With prices gaining momentum, will South America producers plant more soybeans, sugarcane, corn, or cotton in the upcoming years? We hope to be able to shed some light on some of these questions.

Join me on the South America Crop Watch on Agriculture Online.
