Argentina needs rain

Amid the warm, sunny weather that has favored the harvest of summer crops in Argentina, there are growing concerns about the low moisture available for winter grains in certain regions. Although the predominantly dry climate is conducive to field activities, there is an urgent need for rain for emerging winter grains.

According to information from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), almost complete dryness was recorded in all of the country's main agricultural areas, with some isolated areas of light rain (2-10 mm) concentrated in the south of Buenos Aires and the northeast.

With regard to temperatures, the weekly average varied between 1 and 3°C above normal in central Argentina (La Pampa, Buenos Aires and surrounding areas), reaching up to 6°C above normal near the borders with Paraguay and Brazil. As a result, daytime highs ranged from average and high temperatures in the 10s°C range in the south to the low 30s°C further north, with frosts restricted to the colder southern agricultural areas.

The most recent data from the Argentine government shows that, as of June 29, 61% of corn has been harvested, compared to 74% in the same period last year. Regarding cotton, 75% has already been harvested, an increase from last year's 68%.

Meanwhile, planting of wheat and barley is underway, with 63% and 56% completed respectively. This progress is observed amidst climatic conditions that require careful management of water resources and management measures adapted to the current lack of moisture.
