This week, wheat planting advanced to 40% of the total area to be planted, but the excesses of water make the wheat potential falter. The most affected areas are northern Buenos Aires and south of Santa Fe. There is practically no floor to plant. However, it is already manifested throughout the region of the fall in intention to plant. The decrease varies from 10 to 20% compared to last year. The lots that will not go to wheat will pass to corn.
Less wheat lots, more corn lots
Wheat will not achieve last year's big mark. Many lots will be out of the wheat cycle by continuing with excess water. Cordoba is the most advanced province with the sowing. Progress was made with 50% of the intended total. It is followed by south-central Santa Fe with 40% of the surface. However, planting intentions are not encouraging. Long-cycle varieties are far from their optimal planting date. It would be implemented between 10% and 20% less than last year.
More lots of soybeans will be lost due to excesses
In the region, 5% of the area planted with soybeans remains unharvested. Affected by the excesses of water, many of these hectares could not be harvested. Water excess persists.
The northern part of the province of Buenos Aires and part of the General Lopez Department of Santa Fe are the areas with major problems.
Late Maize, the first yields far from what was promised
25% of the area of late maize harvested, shows results that fluctuate in 5 tn/ha. In general, these results are taking place in the southern area of Santa Fe, where the collection is being advanced. The rest of the core zone will continue waiting a few more weeks to know the results. With regard to early maize, the region has harvested 86% of the area. The average yield is set at 9 tn/ha.
