Soybean crops go into flowering stage in southernmost state of Brazil


The soybean crops in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, the southern-most state in the country, have started to go into the flowering stage. For this time of the year, it is early to be in that stage. The reason why most crops are in this stage is because some cultivars were planted too early – prior to October.

In some regions, as the case of Ijuí, western part of Rio Grande do Sul, some leaves are wrinkled, bringing worries for farmers, according to the state’s Rural Institute of Technical Assistance.  On the other hand, the overall condition of the plants is considered good because of recent rains.
