Consultant Raises Brazilian Crop Estimate

April 16, 2013 09:52 AM
 

South American crop consultant Dr. Michael Cordonnier has raised his estimate of Brazil's corn crop by 1 MMT from last week after generous rains last week boosted safrinha corn crop development across much of central Brazil. He says the earlier planted crop is in the grain filling stage and should have enough moisture to finish the season with good yields. "The later-planted crop is in pre-pollination and will still need another 4-5 weeks of adequate moisture before the yields are assured," he says.
