Brazil 2017/18 soy planting seen delayed due to climate factors.

Weather forecasts suggest soybean planting in key regions of Brazil may be delayed due to scarce rains following the end of the fallowing period in states like Paraná, Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul. The absence of rains over the next 10 days in these three regions, where about 51 percent of Brazil’s soybeans are grown, will push back planting this year in relation to last.
