Input costs set new record for the 2016/2017 crop in Mato Grosso, Brazil


The Mato Grosso Institute of Agricultural Economics (Imea) has released new data about the costs of the new soybean crop. It says that, on the eve of the end of fallowing, the cost per hectare to buy inputs reached R$ 3,212 (US$ 993.35), which is a new record.

This was not expected because the Real, the country’s currency, has strenghtened in the last few months.
