Second crop harvest wraps up Brazil


The Agribusiness Financial Institute of Mato Grosso (IMEA) launched a report stating that the harvest of the second corn crop (safrinha corn) in Mato Grosso ended inside the regular time-frame for the state.

“Although the field work has registered a later beginning between the last five harvests, the intense harvesting in the first half of July dictated the rhythm for closure within the period,” studies IMEA.

Looking at yield, the Institute declares that, “As expected, the yield of the corn crops was below what has been seen in the last four seasons due to the late seeding.”

2021/2022 corn crop

Paraná state, the second highest producer of corn in Brazil, already began to plant the primary corn crop of the 2021/2022 harvest. Expectations are that 161 million bushels of corn shall be harvested, a rise of 32% in comparison with final yr. (Paraná was the state hit the worst by poor climate through the second corn crop.)

The beginning of planting was doable because of favorable climate situations. Solely round 36 thousand acres are planted, representing simply 3% of the estimated 1 million complete acres. However the largest hope is to go from 122 million bushels of corn to 161 million.

If that projection is confirmed, the yield shall be 140 bushels per acre, near the file of the 2019/2020 harvest when producers had been in a position to accumulate 150 bpa. Whereas subsequent yr’s first corn crop begins to develop, farmers in Paraná are wrapping up harvest for the second corn crop, which traditionally ends in September. Thus far, 82% of the 6.2 million acres have been harvested.
