The Brazilian grain harvest 2021/2022 should reach 271.8 million tons, registering an increase of 6.4% compared to the previous cycle. The information is from the eighth crop survey by the National Supply Company (Conab).
The improvement in production is the result of a larger area planted with corn in the second harvest, in addition to better development at the end of the crop cycle – especially rice, corn and soybeans.
In an interview with CNN, the agronomist of Brasil Agro, Wender Vinhadelli, explained the factors that led to this estimate.
“This year, we were able to plant soybeans within the best window, which allowed us to harvest soybeans earlier and to plant second-season corn as well, within the best window. Soy in Brazil is almost all finished. We, at the company level, have already finished harvesting our soy, we ended up with 195 thousand tons of soy harvested. We should start harvesting the safrinha corn now from July and we have very good expectations,” he said.
