I am a farmer in Brazil (South of Sao Paulo). Here we plant soybeans, corn, cotton, edible beans and wheat. Like America, Brazil has different regions. In the north (Mato Grosso and Goias) are the big farms, flat lands and tropical weather. They double crop soybeans with corn(with risc of dry weather) and up to end january with cotton. Here in the middle of Brazil (Sao Paulo, Parana) are a lot of Cooperatives and we double crop soybeans with corn(with risc of frost) and cotton with weath. In the south of Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul) they doublecrop soybeans or corn with weath in the winter. This year, the north has a pretty good harvest, the south and Parana was very dry (losses of more than 50%) and São Paulo also was a little bit dry, but it rained almost enough. Every year we do like Kip and Ken and visit farmers of other countries and other regions of Brazil. Glad to see they came to visit us.
