Brazil soy planting advances to 12 percent of area

16 de outubro 2017 |

SAO PAULO, Oct 16 (Reuters) – Brazilian soy producers had planted 12 percent of their 2017/2018 crop through last Thursday, in line with a five-year average but behind the pace of the prior cycle, amid lack of rain in key producing regions, consultancy AgRural said on Monday.

The weekly advance could have been more significant if not for a slower pace in the center-west region, where in some places work had halted completely with irregular rains slowing farmers, AgRural said.

“Planters entered the field in the beginning of last week when there was still soil humidity but they gradually stopped due to lack of rains and the absence of higher volumes predicted for the coming two weeks,” AgRural said.
