Drought and lower grain estimates

He field crosses one of the most important drought of the last 25 years and all forecasts indicate that it will continue to worsen. The Buenos Aires Grain Exchange released this last week the new production estimates of soybean and corn for the 2022/2023 cycle.

According to projections, the soybean crop is expected to be 25 million tonsa 42% drop with respect to the previous cycle and the lowest figure since the 2000/2001 campaign. In the same line, the Rosario Stock Exchange he had also lowered his estimates considerably in soybeans to 27 million tons.

The Rosario Stock Exchange calculated that only in the crops of soybean, wheat and cornwhich constitute the 87% of grain production in Argentina and the 43% of the exports totals of the country, the losses exceed the US$14.140 million.

As reported by the entity, this is equivalent to the total cost of planting the next harvest 2023/24 for the agricultural producer. But the lower production also affects other associated activities. If we add the lower demand for freight, labor and financial services, the total losses for national economic activity reach US$19,000 million.


In early February, the Ministry of Economy had responded to certain requests and enabled revolving funds to get to small producers through agreements with the provinces, municipalities and cooperatives; suspended the advance income taxtax foreclosures and seizures of accounts; refinanced liabilities under the same conditions that the credits were granted; and extended new credit lines with subsidized rates.
