Rains in the Northeast region benefited bean and corn crops in the third harvest

Still according to the analyses, in most of the Center-West and Southeast there was little or no precipitation, which favored the natural drying of corn and the quality of fibers and the cotton harvest.

Between June 1st and 21st, the volumes of rain recorded in the Northeast benefited third-crop bean and corn crops in the Sealba region (Sergipe, Alagoas and Bahia). In the South region, the rains favored the second harvest of corn in the reproductive stage, in addition to the sowing and development of wheat.

This is what Conab's agricultural monitoring bulletin shows. The study is the result of collaboration between Conab, the National Institute of Meteorology (Inmet) and the Global Agriculture Monitoring Group (Glam), in addition to collaborating agents who contribute data researched in the field.

Still according to the analyses, in most of the Center-West and Southeast there was little or no precipitation, which favored the natural drying of corn and the quality of the fibers and the cotton harvest. Low soil moisture, however, caused restrictions in some second-crop corn crops in the reproductive stage in areas of Mato Grosso, Goiás and Minas Gerais, in addition to Matopiba (Maranhão, Tocantins, Piauí and Bahia).

The evolution of the Vegetation Index (IV) of the main producing states indicates that there are favorable conditions for the development of second harvest corn. Despite the delay in sowing, the Index evolved above the previous harvest and the historical average in critical periods of crop development. With the exception of São Paulo and Paraná, the Vegetation Index in the main second-crop corn producing states is currently falling, due to the maturation and harvest of crops.
