AgRural: Brazil soybean harvest 16% complete as of February 3

Foreign media on February 7th news: the harvest survey data released by consulting firm AgRural showed that rains hindered the pace of Brazil’s soybean harvest last week.

As of February 3, 2022, Brazil’s soybean harvest progressed to 16 percent, up from 10 percent a week earlier and up from 4 percent a year earlier.

Although last week’s harvest data was good, it was lower than expected, the company said, because of the emergence of Mato Grosso, Minas Goias, Sao Paulo, Mato Grosso do Sul, and parts of the state of Goias. Rain continued.

In Mato Grosso, the top soybean-producing region, farmers are trying to harvest soybeans during periods of hiatus because of fears that more rain could damage the quality of the soybean crop. However, due to cloudy weather when it does not rain, the moisture content of many soybeans transported to the warehouse is too high, which affects the storage, classification and processing of soybeans.
