The harvest of the new Brazilian soybean crop has advanced to the last sown areas. In the central states of the country, the work is virtually finished, leaving only a few isolated areas to be completed. In the North/Northeast, the work progressed at a slower pace last week due to excess moisture in some states.
According to a survey conducted by SAFRAS & Mercado, until April 24, 94.3% of a total sown area of 37.11 million tons were reaped, equivalent to approximately 35.02 million hectares. In the previous week, the index was 91.6%. In the same period last year, 96.0% of the area had already been reaped, while the five-year average for the period is 94.5%.
