50 thousand hectares of wheat in critical situation in the north of Buenos Aires

5% of the wheat plots went into bad condition and 18% continue to be regular. The flooded soils with water alarm the campaign 2017/2018 in the north of Buenos Aires and the south of Santa Fe. The rains continue to strike the area, putting at risk the wheat planted and the sowing of corn. In the rest of the core region, however, a few millimeters are eagerly awaited to satisfy the lack of soil moisture. There is one week left to start planting maize and an increase of 3% is estimated: 30 thousand hectares more than those sown last year.

​The rains keep insisting on Buenos Aires. There were again important accumulations. Ramallo and Pergamino received 24 mm. August will continue to push on that area: the most significant outbreaks of the storms of the next few days would be recorded there. In the area covered by Colon, Juncal, Ferré and Wheelwright the roads are subdued and a large number of producers have been forced to abandon their lots because of the impossibility of reaching them and the losses caused by constant flooding. On the other hand, in the southwest of Cordoba the lack of water begins to disturb when thinking about planting corn.

Wheat: 23% regular to bad conditions and 70% between excellent and very good

70% of the wheat lots are in very good and excellent condition. However, the lots in the north of Buenos Aires do not evolve well: 5% of the wheat lots went into bad condition and 18% continue to regulate because of the continuous rains. Despite this, the campaign has a good chance of producing 4 Million tons in this campaign.

The corn campaign is approaching

This campaign would be planted 3% more than last year: 1.3 million hectares. Producers will use high technology: fertilization and secondly they will bet on the seed. Many will use hybrids that have responded very well the year past.
