Extra Early Soybeans in Brazil Yielding Over 50bpa
Tue, 23 Dec 2014

Brazil’s soybean crop continues to look very good. Soybean and Corn Advisor president Michael Cordonnier says the early crop is unusually good. “They have harvested the first few fields of soybeans in Mato Grosso. They started on some extra early maturing beans that were planted on the 15th of September. The yields for these first couple fields were actually really good. They were 51 to 52 bushels. That’s very unusual.” Cordonnier says usually the early varieties yield about 30 percent less than the full season varieties but most of the beans will be harvested between mid-February and early March. Cordonnier says the recent uptick in corn prices has Brazilian farmers thinking about second crop corn again.
