Argentina’s crop weather to offer some relief

Rain arrives, but there will be pockets of dry weather as well.

Portions of the soybean growing regions of Argentina will receive needed rain in the first week of November 2021, a welcome change from the last couple of weeks of drier weather. However, there will still be pockets of drier conditions, especially from far northeastern Argentina and into southern Brazil. Wetter trends pick up again across the Central-West region of Brazil. 

After a couple of weeks of very dry conditions, the major soybean producing regions of Argentina will see some rain. Although spotty, any chance of rain is welcome in this region that has suffered some very dry soil moisture conditions thus far this season. Drier weather will persist in far northeastern Argentina and will spill over into southern Brazil. However, many of the major producing regions of Brazil’s Central-West region will see precipitation. 

Planting in Brazil’s major soybean-producing regions continues to run ahead of average as favorable weather thus far this season has allowed for easy planting. For the first week of November, week-ending November 6, there will be more chances of precipitation across the region. According to WeatherTrends360, this will be the eleventh wettest start to November in more than 30 years for the major soybean producing regions of Brazil. 

Farther south, including Brazil’s major growing regions for the first corn crop, precipitation will trend drier than normal in the first week of November 2021. In Paraná, for instance, precipitation for the first week of November is forecast to trend the third least in 30-plus years.

Drier trends spill over into far northeastern Argentina, however, portions of the country’s major soybean growing region will actually see above-normal precipitation in the first week of November. After a couple of very dry weeks, rainfall will be very welcome across this region as planting continues and soil moisture runs a deficit. For the major soybean growing regions of Argentina, the first week of November will trend the ninth wettest in over 30 years, according to WeatherTrends360

The heaviest precipitation looks most likely through Santiago Del Estero, where this will be one of the wettest first weeks of November since 1991, and southward into portions of the western province of Buenos Aires. However, farther east drier conditions will reign and the city of Buenos Aires itself will see the second driest start to November in the same time span.

Areas that see drier weather in northeastern Argentina and southern Brazil will also see above-normal temperatures. For example, Rio Grande do Sul will see the third warmest start to November in more than 30 years, and the city of Buenos Aires will trend the ninth warmest in the same time frame.
