Corn harvests reach 97% of the area in Rio Grande do Sul. Productivity repeats another good year for the corn crop in the state; even exceeds expectations, raising average productivity. Irrigated crops obtained yields of 12 tons per hectare. In the Alto Jacuí, Barn and Northwest Colonial region, part of the area planted to silage and implanted in January will be destined to harvest grains, since the long period of high humidity made it impossible to cut the crop and the plants are passing from the ideal point for making silage.
