RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Argentina’s wheat harvest is seen at 16.7 million tonnes, slightly down from the previous 17 million tonne estimate due to a prolonged drought, the Rosario Grains Exchange (BCR) said.
The estimate suggests wheat production in Argentina, a major global exporter, will be the lowest in five years, the exchange said late on Wednesday, November 11th.
Production in the province of Cordoba was in a state of “disaster” that might worsen, the BCR said in its monthly crop report, adding that the province could register its worst grains harvest in 20 years.
