Pro Farmer Member and Argentine farmer Eduardo Reynolds says waters are receding in Argentina, but in some areas water is still too deep to resume planting.
"Corn sown on time that didn´t see flooding or hail are really awesome -- we haven´t seen that condition in a long time, so we should have a good harvest for first-sown corn," says Reynolds. "On the other hand there is a lot of late corn and the yield is still to be defined in late January or early February when it flowers," he continues.
Reynolds also says pressure from weeds is a concern for corn and soybeans. "Wheat and barley harvest are still underway in many areas so second sown soy is later than usual and we will have to wait and see how things turn out," he adds. "On top of all these problems there is a dry forecast for January, which would be hard on late-sown areas," Reynolds continues.
