Soybean harvest in Brazil gets to 74% of the surface

04.04.2017

The soybean harvest in Brazil has progressed to 74 percent of the surface until the end of last week, according to the latest AgRural report. The average of the last five years for this period is 70 percent of the area. The most advanced region is the Center-West with 99 percent, followed by the Southeast with 89 percent, the South with 5o percent and the North/Northeast with 42 percent.

In the South, there is a significant delay due to a longer cycle of the crops related to lower temperatures during the spring, but still southern soybean growers would have high yields, AgRural says. The consultancy’s production projection is still 107 million metric tons, while Agroconsult puts it at 113 million metric tons.
