Most Brazilian crops already harvested

By the end of April, 70% of the Brazilian grain production for the 2006/2007 crop will already be harvested, according to Eledon Pereira de Oliveira, who is the Crop Survey and Assessment manager at the National Food Supply Company (Conab).

The volume will account for 91 million tonnes out of a total 131.1 million tonnes forecasted for the current crop. The main cultures to be harvested are summer cultures. According to Eledon, by the end of April, 95% of the soy crop, estimated in 58 million tonnes, will be harvested. The first maize crop (maize yields two crops a year), estimated at 36.6 million tonnes, should amount to 70% of the total crop by the end of this month. Harvest for the second maize crop will begin late this month.
