Sowing progress has been quite satisfactory till last week except in the state of MP. The Soybean Processors Association of India (SOPA) now anticipates a crop damage of 10-12% on account of heavy rains in Madhya Pradesh (MP). This estimate is based on a survey undertaken by the industry body in the rain-affected areas of the state.
The Soybean Oil Processors Association (SOPA) expects a crop damage of 10-12 per cent for the oilseed on account of heavy rains in Madhya Pradesh, the largest soyabean-producing State. Based on a quick field survey of rain-hit areas in MP, SOPA said the most affected districts are Indore, Dewas, Ujjain, Dhar, Sehore, Harda, Shajapur, Mandsaur and Neemuch.
Soybean futures dropped in overnight trading after the U.S. Department of Agriculture said in a report that crop conditions improved. About 73% of the U.S. crop was in good or excellent condition as of Sunday, up from 72% a week earlier. Only 54% of the crop earned top ratings at the same time last year, the USDA said.
A team of experts at Penn State has investigated the long-term impact of soybean diseases in the United States. The study revealed that soybean diseases led to more than $95 billion in losses from 1996 to 2016. Paul Esker is an assistant professor of Epidemiology and Crop Pathology in the Department of Plant Pathology and Environmental Microbiology.
Bad weather and coronavirus are walloping Argentina's key soy export industry, with a grains exchange cutting its harvest estimate on Thursday as a long line of cargo ships dropped anchor in the Parana River, delayed by health inspections. Argentina is the world's No. 3 corn and soybean exporter, as well as its top supplier of soymeal livestock feed.
Farmers in Brazil are watching a drought cut yield prospects, mainly in the southern states of the country. Brazilian consultancy AgRural, which is based in Curitiba, has adjusted its soybean production forecast for the country to 124.3 million metric tons this week. That is over 1 million metric tons less than what was projected one week before.
Soybean output for Argentina -- the world's third-largest soy producer and exporter -- is forecast to be at 52 million tons, down 4.6% on February estimates and 6% year on year, in 2019-20 crop year (November-October), on dry conditions in Córdoba and Santa Fe, a Buenos Aires Grains Exchange report said on Thursday.
Harvesting soybeans later than intended can present many challenges for minimizing harvest losses. Those challenges are amplified when snow is on the ground and impacting harvest. Minimization of losses starts at the header. Checking that the sickle-bar knives are sharp and the guards are adjusted properly will ensure stems are being cut rather than broken or leaned over by the header.
With a record-late corn and soybean crop creeping toward maturity this fall, the timing and severity of each region's first freeze is top of mind for many farmers. While the DTN fall weather forecast does not show a high risk for an early freeze in the central U.S., now is a good time to brush up on the agronomics behind the age-old threat of fall cold snaps.
Almost half of this year’s soybean crop will have significant damage from Hurricane Barry, Avoyelles Parish County Agent Justin Dufour said. There are approximately 40,000 acres planted in soybeans, Dufour said. About 20,000 acres, most in the southeast area of the parish, will have some or total crop loss.
