Re: From the floor January 19

hi mike, 

 

two situations for me :

 

southeast cordoba (around 100km west from the very best crop area in Argentina, i would say plays on 2nd division):

my beans last 5 years average is 3,2 tons/hectarea and average corn is 9,5 tons/hectarea

last year was great doing 4,2 tons beans and 11,3 corn

this present year i would guess between 7 and 7,5 tons/hectarea (i am lucky since i have some water 1,8 mts down, neighboards will see 4 to 6 tons/ha) on corn and on beans anyhitng between 1 and 2,5 tons /ha depending on how fast the rains are back

 

 

chaco (north of the country , new fields, cleaned 3 to 6 years ago from the forest, marginal but lot of potential in future) :

average is 2 ton/ha in beans and 5 tons corn

last year we had 3 ton/ha on beans and 4,5 tons /ha on corn

this year is really open since we planted mid december and finished 5 days ago so is open from 0 to 4 tons /ha on beans and corn don´t know really from 0 to 5

 

no re-planting on both scenarios, in cordoba is to late and at the north is raining ok now (here in the north you can harvest 1,5 million tons on beans in total so is a marginal area for stats)

 

there are no insurance private companies for DRY, no goverment insurance , no nothing

Re: From the floor January 19

Santiago,

 

For those trying to do the conversion of hectares to bushels per acre:

 

Corn (56# bu)
1 kilogram/hectare (kg/ha) = .0159 (.016) bushels/acre
1 bushel/acre = 62.77 (63) kilograms/hectare

1 quintal/hectare (q/ha) = 1.593 (1.6) bushels/acre
1 bushel/acre = .6277 (.63) quintals/hectare

1 metric ton/hectare (MT/ha) = 15.93 (16) bushels/acre
1 bushel/acre = .0628 (.06) metric tons/hectare

Wheat/Soybeans (60# bu)
1 kilogram/hectare (kg/ha) = .0149 (.015) bushels/acre
1 bushel/acre = 67.25 (67) kilograms/hectare

1 quintal/hectare = 1.487 (1.5) bushels/acre
1 bushel/acre = .6725 (.67) quintals/hectare

1 metric ton/hectare = 14.87 (15) bushels/acre
1 bushel/acre = .0673 (.07) metric tons/hectare
