The soybean harvest in Brazil advanced last week to nearly 14.6 percent of the total surface and it is still delayed compared to previous years. The regular pace is to reach 21 percent of the area at this period of the year. The reason for that delay was the dry weather of January in producing regions.
A cold front is expected to come to the Center-west part of the country and also to other producing states such as Maranhão, Piauí, Tocantins and of Bahia. Such rains might bring a bigger delay for the harvest in those regions.
