The harvest of the 2018/2019 soybean crop reached 88% of the area planted in Brazil last week, according to survey AgRural. The figure represents a four-percentage-point increase in one week and exceeds 85% of last year and five-year average. Work remains concentrated on the later calendar areas of the South and North / Northeast. Despite the sparse rains registered in the previous weekend in some parts of Rio Grande do Sul, the Rio Grande do Sul harvest continues to advance rapidly and with good yields. In Matopiba, frequent rainfall has made the harvest a little slower and caused occasional problems of quality – nothing to compromise, however, the region’s harvest.
