Soy in Brazil remains 20 percent of the planned area to sow

As of November 20th, the soybean seed carried out in Brazil in 80% of the planned areas (+11% per week), which is slightly below last year's figure (86%).

As already mentioned, sowing has been completed mainly in the central-western regions of the country. At the same time, the slowdown in seeding rates in Rio Grande do Sul state due to the increasing wheat harvest was addressed. Low soil moisture levels are also a concern in some areas of the states of Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais and Goias, despite recent rainfall. Nevertheless, there are no significant risks for the development of plants, most are still in good condition.

The first harvest is also being actively promoted in Brazil - 82% of the planned areas were sown as of the reporting date (+12% per week), which is still below the level of the previous year (91%). The weather conditions for the grain seed are generally considered to be favourable.
