Corn crop set to interrupt manufacturing report
Harvest should reach 89.1 million tons, 43% more than in the previous cycle, according to data analysis company
The next crop of corn should be a record, with a harvest of 89.1 million tons, 43% more than in the previous cycle, according to projections by 4intelligence, a data analysis startup. The estimated yield is 96.4 bags per hectare, an increase of 35% compared to the last harvest.
The recovery of productivity occurs after a difficult period, with prolonged droughts in Mato Grosso and excessive rains in the South region, which accounts for the estimates of a record second crop.
Projections by 4intelligence indicate that the reduction in the productive potential of off-season corn should be only 5.4% compared to the first estimates, carried out before planting. The analysis is the result of the study of satellite imagesmeteorological data and other indicators collected in 380 municipalities in the main producing regions.
The interpretation of satellite images indicates that crops in Paraná should produce about 2.8% more than expected, despite the rains in April. Most of the planting took place within the ideal window, mitigating the impacts of inclement weather, according to the data intelligence firm.
