Producers continue to plant soybeans after the weekend rains, in which almost 5 million hectares of the 17.2 million projected for the 2020/21 season have been incorporated. According to data from the Buenos Aires Cereal Exchange, the greatest interweekly advances were reported in the South of Córdoba, the North of La Pampa-West of Buenos Aires, the South Nucleus and San Luis, after an improvement in surface humidity during the last week.
In addition, to date, 31.4% of the 6.3 million hectares estimated for the current campaign have already been sown in corn, while for the cultivation of sunflower, of the 1.4 million hectares estimated for the current campaign. 94% of the area has been implanted.
In this productive context, the Buenos Aires entity launched a new Agroclimatic Outlook Report on what will happen to the climate in the next 15 days.
For the first week, from 19 to 25 of this month, minimum temperatures will continue to be observed below normal, caused by the entry of southeast winds during the preceding days.
The winds from the tropics will return rapidly, beginning a long period of warmth, with temperatures above normal in most of the agricultural area. The persistent tropical circulation will impede the passage of storm fronts, making lhe rainfall remains scarce in most of the agricultural area, except for its central portion, which will observe some foci with moderate to abundant records, caused by the entry of winds from the southeast.
At the beginning of the second stage of the outlook, from November 26 to December 2, the entry of tropical winds will continue, although with somewhat less intensity than in the first stage, so that maximum temperatures will moderate somewhat.
Parallel, the passage of the storm front will take place, producing abundant rainfall, with wide foci of storms in the north and the center of the agricultural area, while the south will receive moderate to little contributions.
Along with the front, the polar winds will advance, causing a marked late thermal decline in the south and the center of the agricultural area, while the north will remain under the influence of tropical circulation.
