A report of consultancy AgRural reveals that the planting of soybeans has reached 47 percent of the surface in Brazil. The works advanced 17 percentage points in just one week. The rains of last week have favored the planting and now the speed of the work aligned with the traction of the last five years. The top producing state, Mato Grosso, got to 60 percent of the surface, while there is still lack of rains in the region combining the states of Maranhão, Tocantins, Piauí, and Bahia.
