AgRural: Brazil soybean harvest 0.2% complete as of Jan. 6

Foreign media, January 11 news: A report released by consulting agency AgRural showed that as of last Thursday (January 6), Brazil’s 2021/22 soybean harvest progress reached 0.2%, which had not yet started at this time last year.

In the southern Brazilian state of Parana, the harvest has started in the western and southwestern regions, which are also the areas most affected by the drought. Soybean yields on some farms range from 5 to 16 bags per hectare.

In Mato Grosso, which is located in the Midwest, soybean harvesting is concentrated in the western and north-central parts of the state, with preliminary harvest results showing good yields, although some farmers have reported poor soybean quality due to rain.
