Dry Weather in Brazil is Slowing Soybean Planting
By Eduardo Paim:
Here in the state of Mato Grosso we continue with little rain; almost no water falling from the sky. We have many cases of producers who are replanting soybeans, and some cases of three replants of soybean caused by drought. Most of Brazil is with little rain; then I believe that the record production that the government is going to be talking about in future that is not the 2015/2016 harvest. A delay in soybean planting will hurt much planting of winter maize (second crop corn) too.
Rains appear in weather forecasts, but the day comes with rain falling from the sky, the water disappears and no rain falls, or it is raining very little at a time; the water flows onto the soil and does not infiltrate the ground. it remains at low moisture.
