Rains bring relief MT; attention in PR and MS


According to Conab, recent rains brought relief to crops in the Middle-North of Mato Grosso, which previously showed symptoms of water stress. In contrast, Paraná faces a drought scenario, with the absence of significant rain affecting the development of plantations.

In Mato Grosso, recent rains brought relief to crops in the Middle-North, which previously showed symptoms of water stress, highlighting the importance of precipitation for maintaining crop health in critical periods.

In contrast to this situation, Paraná faces a water deficit scenario, with the absence of significant rainfall affecting the development of crops, mainly in the West, Northwest and North regions, where water scarcity begins to impose limits on productive potential.

In Mato Grosso do Sul, irregular rainfall results in a reduction in the productive potential in the Center-South, and has also been limiting the productive potential of the crop

On the other hand, Goiás benefits from regular rainfall, with the majority of crops undergoing vegetative development.

In São Paulo, planting is almost finished, indicating a satisfactory progression of agricultural work, while in Minas Gerais there is increasing concern about the incidence of leafhoppers in crops.

Tocantins presents a positive picture, with crops in good development and adequate conditions for carrying out cultural treatments.

In Piauí and Maranhão, planting is being completed and crops are in good condition. In Pará, sowing is almost finished and regular rains favor crop development, highlighting the importance of the rainfall regime for agriculture in the region.

With planting almost complete, the crops that were sown at the beginning of the planting window are already reaching maturity, while a large part is going through flowering. Attention turns to the south of Mato Grosso do Sul and northern Paraná, where flowering crops must face a period with less rainfall and higher temperatures.

In other producing regions, conditions are suitable for vegetative development.
