Consultant Leaves South American Crop Estimates Unchanged

15:00PM Jan 31, 2012

South American crop consultant Dr. Michael Cordonnier is leaving his estimates of the corn and soybean crops unchanged in the region this week, but says there is still more downside risk to the crops than upside potential.

He expects Brazil to plant a record area of safrinha corn acreage. If the weather cooperates, there is a very good probability of a record safrinha corn crop this year, he says
