Brazil state bans winter soy planting

Brazil’s major soybean growing state has banned the planting of soybeans in the late (safrinha) season. Mato Grosso has extended its fallow period to run from May 1st to September 30th. The state cites “diverse agronomic studies” for its move, noting decreasing efficacy and availability of fungicides for the control of Asian soybean rust (Phakopsora pachyrhizi). Normative Instruction 01/2015 was issued in February and authorises the setting up of a working group to propose a work plan on controlling soybean planting between September 15th-30th. Mato Grosso was one of two states that last year intended to widen its controls on soybean planting periods. The other was Goais, which seeks to stop planting in the final three months of the year.
