In the midst of a storm that can cause an unexpected drop of wheat area
The need to rotate crops, fight weeds and eliminate water excess confirms the intention to increase wheat area by 5-10% in relation to last year. However, there are numerous that there are many lots in bad conditions due to mud and water excesses. The big storm that affected southern of Buenos Aires and La Pampa last week, which also acted on the central region, may aggravate the situation and cause a significant drop in wheat area in the region. Unfortunately half of the soils of the core region experiences high edaphic soil saturation. The scenario of water excesses may be the biggest problem for wheat 2017/18 planting season.

A few lots are still to be harvested in the south of Santa Fe and Córdoba, but in the northwest of Buenos Aires 15% of the first soybeans and 40 to 50% of the second soybeans are missing. The yields of soybeans are at 3,7 ton/ha. In the northeast of Buenos Aires the yields of the second crop soybean are showing a decrease of 25% in comparison to last year.
Regarding margins, the lower yields, losses of areas, lower prices and controls of resistant weeds caused a significant increase of costs.
