    Brazil forecasted to expand soybean acreage to a new record

    Over the past 12 years the soy area grew on average about 5% annually, with the fastest rate or growth taking place in the 2012/2013 crop year at 10.7%

    Brazilian farmers were forecast to expand the country’s soybean planted area for the 12th consecutive year amid strong demand from Asia and in spite of risks related to the exchange rate and higher freight costs. Brazil is likely to expand the area to a record 36.28 million hectares this season, which farmers will start planting around September, a 3.2% expansion from the previous cycle based on government data.
