RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The collection of Brazil's 2020/2021 soybean crop reached 1.9% of the cultivated area through January 28th, the slowest pace for this time in the season since the 2010/2011 cycle, as planting delays and rains are disrupting harvesting work.
In a statement on Monday, agribusiness consultancy AgRural said the amount harvested is about 2.5 million tonnes, most of it in Mato Grosso state. This compares with 11.7 million tonnes collected at the same time last year, when farmers had reaped 8.9% of the area planted with soy nationwide.
