Brazil's harvest in 2016 will reach 209.3 million tons, which is 0.5% less than in 2015 according to the estimates from the Brazilian stats institute, IBGE.

Brazil raises estimates of corn and soybean harvests, helped by late rainfall

While early-sown soybeans were hit by a “scarcity of rainfall”, precipitation arrived in time for the flowering and grain-filling period for later planted crop.

The official Conab crop bureau lifted by 1.0m tons to 94.3m tons its estimate for Brazil's soybean production in 2014-15, as late rainfall helped results “surprise positively” in particular in central areas.
