Brazil crop area to reach 51 m ha

The Brazilian crop area for 2012/13 is to rise by 0.2-2.7% compared with last year’s record area to at least 50.9 million ha, according to the Ministry of Agriculture’s supplies agency, the Conab. The upper end of the estimate sees planting reaching 52.2 million ha ( Agrow No 626, p 20). The rise is entirely due to record planting of soybeans. The areas for beans, cotton, maize and rice are all set to fall. The entire 2010/11 area covered 50.8 million ha, the agency adds. This is the first official estimate for the current planting season based on growers’ initial intentions.
