The weather pattern remains quite favorable for developing second-crop corn in central Brazil as episodes of scattered showers and thunderstorms continue. The crop has been able to take advantage of early planting and an active second half of the rainy season.

Corn and soybeans in southern Brazil and central Argentina are in the late-fill, maturing and early harvesting stages. Soil moisture is favorable for late-filling crops. Episodes of scattered showers and thunderstorms will cause some harvest disruptions, but nothing to be concerned about at this time.
