Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Farm Progress America, September 7, 2022

Max Armstrong shares insight on the upcoming Brazil soybean crop versus U.S. plans.

Max Armstrong reports that Brazil is going to plant soybeans like never before and if the weather cooperates the country is in for a record harvest – 300 million tons. That’s according to CONAB, the statistics agency from Brazil. The 14% boost is being attributed to two factors – more planted area and a boost to yield in recovering from drought. Meanwhile, a Farm Futures survey shows U.S. farmers plan to plant about what they did in 2022. Max compares yields for both countries.

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
