Weather continues to be more favorable, but concerns remain in RS

    The Brazilian weather scenario has begun to look up in recent days

   Significantly less rain in southern states has been enabled planting progress

   Rio Grande do Sul: planting rose from 12% to 53% of projected area in just one week

   According to Emater/RS, producers took advantage of the drier weather to speed up planting efforts even in regions where the soil was not ideal

   Precipitation to remain low this week – expected maximum: 1.18 in/30 mm in some regions of Rio Grande do Sul

   Aggressive planting expected in coming days, with attempts to catch up after weather-related delays

   Planting progress was 74% complete at this time last year

    Despite improved weather conditions, the emergence stage in Rio Grande do Sul was not favored in recent weeks due to limited sunlight

   Emater reported that plantations are fairly heterogeneous in some regions, putting a damper on expectations for the crop’s average yield

   Current low prices also limit producers’ investments in applications of fungicides and fertilizers, which could also negatively affect final productivity
