Corn Harvest in Brazil
By Eduardo Paim:
Here in Mato Grosso in areas that are reaping corn safrinha (second crop) 2015 producers are not very happy with the production, they expected average harvest of 130 to 140 bags per hectare, but are noticing a reduction of 15% in production. The problem is not only in reducing production, farmers are reaping poor quality corn, with moldy corn, and burned up with a white layer of plaster.
I heard the same reports to the State of Parana.
Producers are putting the bad quality of and low productivity on diseases, because there was too much rain that caused these problems.
