Brazil’s BrasilAgro Plants Soybeans Ahead of Better Weather

Foreign media, October 19 news: Brazilian agricultural company BrasilAgro said on October 17 that it will start planting soybeans earlier this year on its fields in Mato Grosso and Goias states due to improved weather.

The company has 39,000 hectares of farmland in the state of Mato Grosso and 4,900 hectares in the state of Goias.

The company said that the weather forecast is optimistic, so it will start planting soybeans earlier this year. Brazil’s weather this year shows signs of improving compared to last year.

Wendell Venhadley, director of operations at BrasilAgro, said all forecasts point to a weakening of La Niña this year, which will allow for near-normal rainfall, which will benefit crop production.

In contrast, La Niña over the past year has negatively impacted the company’s agricultural production.

BrasilAgro in September projected that the company’s soybean production in 2022/23 could be 218,600 tonnes, up 11% from 2021/22.
