The official numbers published by the Ministry of Agribusiness on May 2 last, show that agricultural producers already sold 45.2% of their harvest against 31% in 2017, in a scenario of drought, rain and increases in the dollar. For grain producing entities, the responsibility that there is no foreign exchange income now belongs to the exporters.
The field negotiated a total of 17 million tons of soybeans against 18 million tons last year. Although this number shows a reduction of 5.5% when taking the estimate to harvest, it is clear that with a campaign of 37.6 million tons, what is delivered represents 45.2% and against 31%, of the 58 million initially assessed by the government. The commercialization is above the previous period.
