Now the attention of the Brazilian producer turns to the second corn crop.
In Mato Grosso, there are cases of crops that have lost quality, and producers are harvesting soybeans with up to 40% humidity.
Now the harvest in Mato Grosso is ahead compared with the harvest of 12.4% a year ago.
Brazil’s soybean crop faces two different realities with too much rain in the Center-West and conditions that are too dry in the South.
Brazil will plant less corn this year.
Planting reached 96% of the estimated area for the 2017/2018 harvest, up from 95% last year and 93% on average for five years, according to AgRural’s survey.
Brazilians invested more in inputs for the 2017/2018 soybean crop.
Planting of the 2017/2018 crop is in the final stretch, and producers are worried about the low profitability.
Weather has cooperated enough to help Brazil's farmers get the soybean seeding caught up.
Next weekend, a cold front should advance to the Southeast and Central-West regions, causing rains that will benefit soybean crops.
