Consultant Raises Brazilian Corn Crop Estimate

15:00PM Apr 22, 2014

 

 

Pro Farmer Consultant Dr. Michael Cordonnier has raised his Brazilian corn estimate due to indications farmers have planted more safrinha (second crop) corn acres than previously expected. He also notes that weather has been generally favorable. Dr. Cordonnier made no other changes to his South American crop estimates this week.
