Brazil: soy harvest reaches 68% and projections can go higher; AgRural

28.03.2017

Consultancy AgRural has released its most recent crop update for Brazil. According to the consultancy, the soybean harvest progressed nationwide to 68 percent of the total surface. The average of the previous years is 67 percent. The output estimate was kept at 107 million metric tons, but the experts have signaled to a likley increase in April. The harvest works have ended in Mato Grosso do Sul and are pretty close to finish in Mato Grosso and Goiás.

The harvest is now slower in the states that form the Matopiba (Maranhão, Tocantins, Piauí and Bahia), but the yields tend to be high in the region. In the southernmost state of the country, Rio Grande do Sul, the crop also is not going so fast because of lower temperatures for the period.
