Grain production should reach 251.4 million tons according to a Conab survey

Brazilian grain production is expected to be 251.4 million tons in the 2019/2020 harvest. The record performance in agriculture is mainly due to the soybean and corn harvests, responsible for around 88% of production. The data appears in the 10th Grain Survey carried out by the National Supply Company (Conab).

This harvest, Conab estimates the largest harvest ever recorded for the oilseed, with a production of 120.9 million tons. The good result was obtained, despite the climatic problems registered mainly in Rio Grande do Sul, with a national average productivity record higher than that of the last harvest. The reflection of good production can be seen in product exports. In the first half of this year, the country exported 60.3 million tons of grain, an increase of 38% compared to the same period last year. The increase in the dollar exchange rate against the real contributed to this number, increasing the competitiveness of Brazilian products on the international market. Soy and other agribusiness products contributed to a balance of approximately US$$ 36 billion in the trade balance, something around R$ 190 billion.

Corn production is also expected to be the highest on record. With the harvest carried out in 25% of the 2nd harvest of the cereal, Brazil is expected to have a production of more than 100 million tons. This result was achieved despite the delay in soybean planting, which impacts corn planting, meaning that part of the sowing was done outside the ideal window. In Mato Grosso, the main producing state, weather conditions were less favorable than in the last harvest, which did not allow crops to express their full productive potential.

However, growth in the planted area must compensate for negative influences on the crop. This increase may be a consequence of prices charged in the market, at remunerative levels for the producer, who encouraged planting. In this expansion of the product, Brazil will record a third harvest of the cereal, driven by the producing region of Sergipe, Alagoas and the northeast of Bahia (Sealba). With sowing completed, performance depends on weather conditions in the coming months.

Another product that has already registered the planting of the 3rd harvest is beans. But, for legumes, the climate has a greater influence in the North and Northeast areas of the country, since production recorded in the Center-West is irrigated. With the cultivation of three crops of the product, consumption and production remain aligned, close to 3 million tons.

Winter crops – With the planting of the main crops finalized, the Company continues to monitor the development of crops and the impact of the climate. Highlight for wheat, which shows significant growth in the planted area, reaching 2.32 million hectares, an increase of 13.7%, reaching a production of 6.3 million tons.
