Anticipated Early Planting in Brazil Not Working Out.
By Eduardo Paim
Here in Mato Grosso we have not yet started planting soybeans for this harvest. The rains that were forecast are gone! In place of the rains are feeling a heatwave. Night heat is hot as day! The forecast is still that the rains should normalize after 15th of this month, but here were all excited about the early arrival of rains and thinking that would plant early. The few producers who planted their crops in the first rains in late September already lost them. They will have to replant!
Here in Mato Grosso is so hot that are roasting coffee on the asphalt of the streets.
