Brazil's soybean farmers may start harvesting in December - AgRural
SAO PAULO, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Brazilian soybean farmers in the key state of Mato Grosso may start harvesting the crop before the end of December, agribusiness consultancy AgRural said on Friday, as the pace of sowing has been the fastest in history.
Mato Grosso farmers, who have enjoyed great weather and an excellent start to the season, have basically finished planting. Brazil's overall soy planting reached 89 percent of an estimated 35.8 million hectare area in the 2018/19 season, compared with a historical average of 78 percent, AgRural said.
