35% delay in corn sowings

400 thousand hectares are yet to be planted in the core region of Argentina. Numerous flooded plots in south Santa Fe and northeast Buenos Aires will be destined for early soybeans or late corn. 100 thousand hectares would be affected by adverse climate conditions. What happens over the next week will be crucial in determining how much early maize plantings will be reduced in the core region.

Rains would leave 100,000 hectares out of first corn

Last year, the advance of corn sowings was of 92% as of the previous week. This year, only 57% of planting intentions have been fulfilled. Of the 400 thousand hectares yet to be planted in the core region, 340 thousand are located in northern Buenos Aires and southern Santa Fe, the most problematic area. In fact, these areas are full of plots that were sown 15 days ago but barely show signs of emergence. After the last week, total rains stood at record levels for the month of September.


Wheat is resisting the blows of climate and disease

Plots with good to excellent conditions increase their share from the previous week (now standing at 65%). 25% of the area shows good conditions and barely 10% is qualified as in regular and bad condition. Producers are applying a second dose of fungicides, given that environmental conditions of high humidity favor the growth of diseases.

Preparation of soybean plots

The past winter, with its high temperatures and constant rainfall, has favored the growth of ever more resistant weeds. This year, higher doses of herbicides will be needed to combat them. This increases the costs ofpreparing the lots that will go to soybeans.
