22/01/2018 0:00 - Crop Progress and Condition Reports
Rains Improved Crop Conditions

This week the drought areas decreased and the condition of the early crops in the region improved. Weekly rains varied between 10 and 110 mm. The sectors less favored by the rains are in the north of Buenos Aires .

Early corn improved its condition

The rains gave a boost to the cereal and arrived in time to reinforce the grain filling. The average yields of the region rose 0.2 tons compared to last week, remaining at 9 Tn/ha. The highest yields, 12 Tn/ha, are projected in the plots provided by the water of the subsurface layers. 30% of the early corn improved their condition, now they are classified as very good at 65%. Also improved the plots that were in regular conditions, which are 10% of the region.

Rains improve soybeans

50% of the soybeans go into the beginning of the most critical stage of the crop with 80% of the lots in very good conditions. The resistance that the crop was showing to the thermo-hydric stress and the new contributions of water that it received recomposed the crop. However, those sectors that received very few millimeters and are not supplied with subsurface water layers, need more water in order not to continue with the yield potential of the crop to the downside. 5% of the regular lots are located in the most affected areas of the north of Buenos Aires, as in General Pinto. There, the rains of the last two months did not exceed 100 to 110 mm.

Second crops need more water

The crops planted later, due to their lower development, did not reach the water in the subsoil and increasingly demand more water. Their condition is tied to the arrival of new rains. 5% of the second soybeans started flowering. Second corns are in advanced vegetative stages.
