Farmers in Rio Grande do Sul have already begun the first works related to the harvest of rice from the 2018/2019 harvest. According to the Rio Grande Rice Institute (Irga), the withdrawal of the cereal is already being carried out in Taquari, central region of the state. The technicians of the entity Eduardo Sechaus says that the rural producer Alex Sandro Bizarro has already begun harvesting an area of 15 hectares. The total planted was 45 hectares. “The average yield this season, based on what was harvested, is at 7K kilos per hectare”. As the Taquari region was not affected by rains that hit the state, productivity is similar to that expected at the beginning of the season and seen last season, he says.
