    Brazilian farmers encouraged by moisture conditions to plant soy and corn

    Producers in Mato Grosso were quick to plant as soon as the soy seeding ban - a measure adopted each year to reduce soy rust outbreaks - ended on Sept. 15

    Brazilian farmers sped up soy and corn plantings this week for the country’s next grain crop, under favorable weather conditions and a positive market outlook, despite a sharp fall in soybean futures in Chicago on Tuesday. Soybean planting in Brazil’s second-largest producing state of Paraná reached 9% of the expected final area this week, up 8 percentage points from last week and compared to only 1 percent at this time last year, as ample soil moisture allowed for a quick start of fieldwork.
