Foreign media news on February 14: Harvest survey data released by consulting agency AgRural shows that as of February 10, 2022, Brazil’s soybean harvest progress reached 24%, up from 16% a week ago, and higher than 9% in the same period last year. %.
The soybean harvest in Mato Grosso, the top soybean producing region, is halfway through, although the quality of soybeans may decline due to rains that hampered field operations. AgRural said the rains were still very frequent, and farmers in Mato Grosso were harvesting soybeans when it was not raining, and farmers were rushing to get the soybeans out of their fields before the quality of the soybeans became serious.
Farmers in Rondônia and Minas Goias reported high soybean moisture.
In Paraná, average soybean yields in the west and southwest remain low, confirming the lack of rain and high temperatures that have hurt soybean yields.
AgRural expects Brazil to produce 128.5 million tons of soybeans in 2021/22.
