Weather conditions favor the sowing of spring crops in the Northern Hemisphere and the development of crops in South America

Published Apr 16, 2024

Tridge summary

Global weather conditions are significantly impacting agricultural activities, with the Northern Hemisphere benefiting from accelerated planting due to favorable weather, while South America enjoys improved prospects for soybeans and corn crops following recent rains. In the United States, the combination of warm weather and periodic rains is supporting the sowing of spring crops and the development of winter crops, though upcoming cooler temperatures and more rain could introduce delays but also enhance soil moisture levels. Brazil's corn harvest predictions are optimistic, attributed to high productivity despite subpar soil moisture, whereas Argentina is experiencing harvest delays due to heavy rains but still expects increased yields for its late soybean and corn crops, despite a lowered corn harvest forecast by the Rosario Grain Exchange. Europe faces mixed weather conditions affecting sowing and crop development, Australia is poised for favorable winter crop conditions, and Ukraine hopes for an end to its precipitation deficit and abnormal heat, which could improve planting conditions.

Weather conditions are helping to accelerate planting in the Northern Hemisphere, while rains in South America are improving soybean and corn crop potential. In the Midwest, as well as the Central and Southern Plains of the United States, warm weather with periodic rains favors the sowing of spring crops and the development of winter crops. Temperatures will drop next week and another wave of rain will delay planting but replenish soil moisture reserves, which could lead to more corn acreage. In the center and north of Brazil there are periodic rains, favorable for the development of second-crop corn crops, but their amount will not allow to accumulate sufficient reserves of moisture before the dry season. The rains will continue next week, although less intensively, in particular in the state of Paraná. Despite recent rains, soil moisture is below normal in most fields planted with second-crop corn, but analysts are raising crop forecasts. Thus, the Safras & Mercado company ...
