The weekly report of Brazilian consultancy AgRural informs that the second corn crop harvest in the center-south of Brazil has advanced 4.5 percentage points to 9.3 percent of the total surface. There is still a delay of 12.4 percent compared to last year, but close to the average of the previous four years.
The major delay is in the state of Paraná, where less than one percent of the harvest finished and a forecast of rain in the last week of June that worries the farmers. In Mato Grosso, on the other hand, the harvest has gone at a faster pace reaching 21.3 percent of the planted area. In all other states, the works did not progress to more than six percent of the planted surface.
