Brazil’s farmers continue to make slow harvest progress. Brazilian ag consultant Kory Melby says the harvest pace in Mato Grosso is well behind average. “To-date, 15 to 20 percent of the state is harvested. We should be at 40 to 50 percent by mid-February and that gives you an idea of how slow things are this year.” Soybean yields are variable. “Early soybean yields were terrible. I’ve heard from 20 to 30 bushel yields. Later stuff will be much better and I’ve heard of yields equal to or better than last year, but they haven’t got to it yet.”
