Uruguay 2009/10 crop area up 30%

The Uruguayan summer crop area is expected to be around 30% up on last season at just over 1 million ha, according to the Ministry of Agriculture. Soybeans remain the dominant crop. The area for soybeans has risen continuously since the 2000/01 season and is expected to reach 847,700 ha for 2009/10. The maize area is forecast to rise for the fourth consecutive year to some 108,500 ha. The sorghum area is to dip 10% to 59,900 ha, while that for sunflowers is to continue its general downward movement since the 2002/03 season. Farmers intend to plant just 12,200 ha. Some 30% of the summer crop area had been planted by the time of the issue of the reports in late December. The Ministry also noted that the 2009 winter crop area was up, including the largest planting of wheat since the mid-1970s.
