Weather being watched as Brazil plants soybeans


Soybean planting is starting in South America and analysts say Brazil is expected to deliver a record crop unless there’s a major change in the weather forecast.

Meteorologist Drew Lerner with World Weather Incorporated says the current hot, dry conditions in Brazil are normal before the monsoon season begins and rain is coming to Mato Grosso and southeast into center-south Brazil in October.

“El Nino usually supports a normal start to the rainy season.”

Michael Cordonnier with Corn and Soybean Advisor tells Brownfield even if heat causes slight planting delays in central Brazil, normal soybean yields are possible as long as the weather stays good.
