Lack of Rain Worries Brazilian Soybean Growers

Growers may have to replant soybeans.

September is typically a rainy month in Mato Grosso, the top soy-producing state in Brazil, but after showers in the areas of Sapezal and Lucas do Rio Verde on Sept. 17, no rain has fallen. Those rains prompted farmers to begin planting, but with no moisture since, many producers are concerned that they will have to replant the crop.

Mato Grosso is the usually the first Brazilian state to plant soybeans, but with moisture low and future rains uncertain, many producers are hesitant to begin planting.
