The estimate released today (9) is even more optimistic than the one released in the first forecast, last month, as it increased by 2.7%, or 7.3 million tons, the forecast for 2022.
For next year, increases of 3.4% are expected for soybeans, 13.9% for the first corn crop, 28.4% for the second corn crop and 4.3% for herbaceous cotton . On the other hand, drops of 4.2% for rice and 8.5% for wheat are estimated.
The forecast is that the 2022 harvest ends with 25.2 million tons more than this year, which should close at 252.8 million tons, or 0.5% below the 2020 production.
Despite increases of 10.5% for soybeans, 4.9% for rice and 26% for wheat, this year it should close with drops of 14.6% for corn and 17.6% for the herbaceous cotton.
