RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Brazil’s Agriculture Ministeron Thursday, February 4th, confirmed that the government expects to harvest bumper soybean and corn crops in spite of planting and harvesting delays in 2020.
A drought late last year delayed sowing of Brazil’s soybeans, and excess rainfall disrupted harvesting in January. This delayed delivery of grain to trading companies and affected Brazil’s ability to export.
Speaking in an event to mark the beginning of the harvest in the northeastern state of Bahia, Dias reaffirmed that farmers will reap up to 133 million tonnes of soybeans in 2021 and potentially more . . .
