Brazil soybean farmers sell over 65 mln T of soybeans in advance - Datagro
SAO PAULO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Brazilian soybean farmers, who are starting to plant the new crop this month amid dry weather, have sold 50% of the estimated 2020/2021 production through Oct. 2, totaling 65.65 million tonnes, according to agribusiness consultancy Datagro on Thursday.
This is a record for this time in the season and represents almost twice the historical average for sales of soybeans, which is 26.7% of the estimated harvest for early October, Datagro said. (Reporting by Roberto Samora Writing by Ana Mano)
