Conab raises the forecast for the report grain harvest in 2021/22 to 271.2 million tons

Brasilia -. Brazilian cereal manufacturing within the 2021/2022 crop is estimated at 271.2 million tonnes, a rise of virtually 14.5 million tonnes in comparison with the earlier cycle, as outlined within the twelfth Crop Survey of cereals revealed on Thursday (8) by the Nationwide. The provision firm (Conab).

“Though antagonistic climate circumstances have been encountered in some producing areas, particularly within the southern states of the nation, that is the most important harvest ever recorded within the historic sequence of grain manufacturing in Brazil,” Conab president Guilherme Ribeiro factors out.

The principle cultivated product, soybeans had a growth marked by excessive temperatures in necessary producing areas, reminiscent of crops in Paraná, Santa Catarina and a part of Mato Grosso do Sul. This antagonistic climate situation had a extreme affect on yields, influencing the decline in manufacturing. In Rio Grande do Sul, for instance, the lower recorded exceeded 50%. On this situation, the grain harvest within the nation is estimated at 125.6 million tons, a discount of about 10% in comparison with the 2020/21 harvest.

Within the case of maize, there was a rebound in complete manufacturing with a harvest estimated at 113.2 million tonnes, which represents a rise of 30% in comparison with the earlier cycle. Whereas the primary crop noticed a sure stability in manufacturing at 24.9 million tonnes, resulting from unfavorable climate circumstances particularly within the southern states, the second crop was marked by a resumption of manufacturing of about 41.8%, estimated at 86.1 million tons.

The outcome was no higher as a result of lack of rain in Goiás, São Paulo and Minas Gerais. In these states, along with the drought, there have been stories of assaults on crops by spitting bugs, a pest that has additionally affected productiveness in Paraná. “Two seasons in the past there was a report of leaves in chilly local weather areas. Since then, the plague has appeared extra typically. For the 2022/23 harvest, producers should pay particular consideration to the emergence of this vector to attempt to management it higher,” explains the director of Agricultural Info and Agricultural Coverage at Conab, Sergio De Zen.

One other necessary commodity, cotton, had its productiveness partially affected by water stress in some crops, whereas the standard of lint, which has an estimated manufacturing of two.55 million tonnes, is excellent as a result of climate. Alternatively, the shortage of rain favors the progress of the harvest, which is anticipated to finish in September. Additionally price noting is sorghum, which, boosted by the worth of corn, recorded a report manufacturing of two.85 million tons, a rise of 36.9% in comparison with the earlier harvest.

Bean growers, however, confronted climate issues in all three legume crops. Even so, manufacturing is estimated at round 3 million tonnes, which meets the nation’s provide. Within the case of rice, the entire quantity to be harvested is estimated at 10.8 million tonnes, a lower from 2020/21, resulting from a smaller space for planting, in addition to the lower in nationwide common productiveness. Nevertheless, manufacturing can be ample for home market demand.

soybean mapping

On this version, the Firm presents the outcomes of mapping the areas cultivated with soybeans. Within the 2020/2021 harvest, work was carried out within the states of the Midwest area and in Rondônia. Within the present season, the methodology was used for the Matopiba area, which incorporates Maranhão, Tocantins, Piauí and Bahia. With the conclusion of the actions, it was attainable to enhance the evaluation processes and supply data with larger safety and transparency to society, in addition to promote the applying of recent applied sciences within the Firm’s harvest estimates in collaboration with Inpe. Along with offering entry to the placement of soybean areas primarily based on distant sensing and geostatistics, the state-owned firm has up to date soybean acreage estimates for the area primarily based on this work.

winter crops

Among the many winter crops, Conab initiatives a report manufacturing of wheat, reaching 9.4 million tons. Within the south of the nation, there was a slight delay in sowing resulting from extreme rainfall, however the circumstances are favorable for crop growth.


Externally, the Firm adjusted the export quantity for cotton given the slight lower in manufacturing expectations in comparison with the amount anticipated within the final survey. Consequently, international gross sales ought to attain 1.9 million tons. The estimate of ending shares stays steady, estimated at round 1.3 million tonnes.

Within the case of soybeans, ending shares had been up to date primarily based on the outcomes of the crop mapping work. With the info revision, the carry-forward inventory for the 2020/21 crop has elevated to eight.85 million tonnes, which additionally influences a rise within the present crop’s ending shares, that are estimated at 6.19 million tonnes. The projection of the export of oilseeds was additionally raised, with the expectation of reaching a quantity of 77.19 million tons. Within the amassed interval between January and August, 66.6 million tons have already been exported.

Additionally elevated for wheat carryover inventory in 2023, pushed by greater anticipated grain manufacturing. Within the new estimate, shares are forecast to finish at 1.6 million tonnes for the August 2022 to July 2023 advertising 12 months crop. Within the case of maize, decrease productiveness in key producing areas within the second crop lowered the anticipated quantity for grain consumption and export, now estimated at 76.5 million tons and 37 million tons, respectively. Even with these declines, the ending inventory projection was additionally down barely from 9.7 million tonnes to 9.4 million tonnes.

As for rice, Conab forecasts decrease consumption of the product in comparison with the survey launched in August and may attain the extent of 10.8 quantity steady in comparison with the earlier harvest. Consequently, carry-over shares will probably be at extra comfy ranges, forecast to shut the 12 months at 2.36 million tonnes. You will need to observe that each the exported and imported volumes for 2022 have been revised.

Thus, the brand new forecast is that Brazil will export 1.4 million tons and import 1 million tons of rice in 2022, the motivation of the changes being the monitoring of the evolution of exports to this point. For beans, the figures within the provide desk confirmed no vital modifications on this survey.

Full knowledge on the twelfth grain harvest survey 2021/22 and market circumstances for these merchandise will be discovered on the Conab portal, whereas detailed data on soybean mapping is revealed on the corporate’s data portal. Additional particulars on the consequences of climate on crops can be found often within the Crop Situation Monitoring and Conab Agricultural Monitoring Bulletin editions.
