by | Dec 5, 2023 | 5 Ag Stories, News

Argentina and some parts of Brazil are seeing nice rains in the nearby forecasts, but there are still large sections of Brazil that are fairly dry. Allendale commodity broker Greg McBride gave an update on the current weather conditions.

However, McBride said there are some much-needed rains in the longer-term forecasts.

Soybean planting in Brazil is still behind the average, but not enough to raise any huge concerns yet.

Ahead of the December WASDE Report, McBride provided some insight into what changes we could see to the South American crop numbers.

McBride also provided some advice for producers in a marketplace that is heavy on South American news.
