Brazilian Snowbirds

I'm not sure if the snow is affecting exports. But, southern Brazil received more snow this week. Specifically, the snow fell in the cities of Gramado and Caxias do Sul. Both are in state of Rio Grande do Sul. Do you think these guys are worried about Brazilian soybean exports?

Re: Brazilian Snowbirds

Hello....

 

I'm from Brazil and this picture it's a joke. It was a gamble that relatives did.

 

These cities do not represent anything in the national production of soybean. In truth neither produce soybeans, but are well-known for producing fine wines and chocolates.
 
The State of Rio grande do Sul is the third in production in the country. producing 12.5 mi/ton.

eldake,

 

The snow did fall though, right? Where are you from in Brazil? And, while you're on-board, can you tell us what is the latest talk about Brazilian soybean acreage for next year? Will soybeans steal acreage from a dismal corn market?

 

What say you?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Re: Brazilian Snowbirds

Hello marketeye
This snow that fell in Brazil's rio grande do sul State, and its production puts him in third place in national production.
 
How to harvest 13/14, what we have heard from experts is that the area of planting with soybeans in Brazil, in the early stages of preparation, should grow 5.8%, reaching 29.3 million hectares compared with 27.7 million hectares in the previous period. With this increase in area, the Brazilian production of soya beans can reach 88.4 million tonnes in 2013/2014. The soybean area should grow occupying grazing areas, summer corn, and lands in the region of cerrado in new agricultural frontier called Mapitoba (the junction of the borders of the States of Maranhão, Piauí, Tocantins and Bahia).
 
Corn
 
The production is expected from77million tons of corn in the 2013/14, whereas the sum of 1st and second harvest. The reduction must be influenced by lower prices, because of the recovery of the u.s. crop. The 2012/13 corn crop is estimated by Agroconsult in 81 million tons.
 
Corn off-season (winter harvest or Milho Safrinha in brazil) must lose space for cotton of second harvest. Already the first cotton crop should not grow significantly, because it is stronger in Bahia and not in Mato Gross.
