30 thousand hectares of wheat cannot be planted

In this week, 55 thousand hectares could be planted of the 110 thousand hectares that were left to be made. However, 30 thousand have been dropped from the plans for the latest rains. What remains in the last section is 25 thousand that depend on the climate of this weekend. Despite everything, the wheat is rated at 83% very good to excellent and the rest good. The disease alert is triggered at the start of the crop.

Rains will continue to threaten wheat

Since Friday of last week, the core area has been receiving constant rain and drizzle. The most important accumulations occurred in the eastern of the region. Rosario received 64 mm and Baradero 60 mm. The accumulation of the last rains added to the water reserves of the soils causes that more than half of the core zone presents excesses of water. This situation removed 30 thousand hectares destined to wheat in the northwest of Buenos Aires and in some localities of Santa Fe, like El Trébol and Totoras. These plots will be incorporated into the next soybean cycle. These rains also generated ideal conditions for disease development. On the other hand, rainfall has favored the incorporation of nitrogen fertilizers. 40% of the plots are starting the tillering stage and 3% is very advanced in this stage. 40% are developing sheets and the latest 17% are just emerging. In spite of the constant drizzles that the region is receiving, the wheats are developing with a very good plant stand. Only a few plots are showing problems in implantation.


Corn harvest: slow but with better yields

The advance of the harvest of the corn crop planted in December is 40%. Rainy days do not allow the harvest to advance. The yields of the last harvested plots improved the marks of last week. Now they average 7,5 Tn/ha
