Safra Towards End With a Normal Climate in the US, Assessing Rural Climax – Globo Rural Magazine

The United States is moving toward the end of the grain harvest with a normal climate. Under these circumstances, no significant decline in maize and soybean production can be expected over the next 15 to 30 days.

This estimate is by the agronomist of the rural climax, Marco Antonio dos Santos. Regarding the 2021/2022 cycle, he said, “as we have commented, there is a relatively good harvest, with production rates within normal limits, without significant gaps or large productivity records.” Field in the US Midwest.

On Monday (8/9), the Crop Conditions Report released by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) was as good as 48% last week.

Those considered the best were 12% of the total. However, regular planting and conditions increased from 28% to 27% and bad ones from 9% to 10%. The worst were 3% of the total.

In the case of maize, the proportion of crops considered to be in excellent condition is 15% of the total. The good ones have risen from 47% to 49% in the last week. The regulars dropped from 27% to 25%, while the worst and worst were 8% and 3%, respectively.

According to the USDA, U.S. farmers are expected to harvest 374.68 million tons of corn from the 2021/2022 harvest, 118.08 million tons of soybeans. One month ago estimates were 385.21 million tonnes of grain and 119.88 million tonnes of oilseeds.

Santos points out that the next 15 to 20 days will be the last to fill the grain and in some areas the harvest may have started by the end of this month.

According to him, the trend for the coming days is that volatile areas in most productive areas of the U.S. Midwest are gaining strength. Rainfall should not be generalized, but it should encourage more crops.

The worst-affected areas in the United States are the states of Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota, where there is no rain forecast this week, the agricultural meteorologist points out. However, next season, climate models will show a new winter front and bring in more normal rainfall, which should occur in Kansas as well.

“More general rainfall is forecast for the next 15 days in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky, the eastern part of the corn belt and even more southern areas.
