The cost to produce one hectare of corn reached R $ 2,353.80 in Mato Grosso in the month of August. According to the Mato Grosso Institute of Agricultural and Livestock Economics (Imea), the item that weighed most in the producer’s pocket in the last month was the soil corrective, due to the supply and demand ratio and increase in freight, coupled with the increase in fertilizer expenses , reflecting the appreciation of the dollar. In the face of the high US currency scenario, the Imea highlights this is one of the factors that make the next harvest an “unknown”. “… it is of the utmost importance, in this period of intensification in the purchase of inputs, that the producer is aware of the good management of expenses and use of business opportunities to enable the next harvest,” warns the Imea
