Rainfall over the past few days has improved the conditions of planted soybeans and corn, especially in plantations that were sowed later. Soy sowing was finally completed this week, with some 16.2 million hectares planted, according to the Buenos Aires Grain Exchange’s latest survey. At the same time, water conditions also improved, with 47% of the planted area reportedly in adequate or optional conditions. Some 56% of the second-batch soy area is currently reporting poor or regular crop conditions and the central-eastern area of Entre Ríos is the hardest-hit region. This represents 7.5 million tons less than the previous season, which reached 52 million tons.
