USDA World Agricultural Production

USDA forecasts Brazil corn production for 2014/15 at 75.0 million tons, unchanged from last month, but down 5.0 million tons from last year. Area is estimated at 15.0 million hectares, unchanged from last month, but down 0.8 million hectares from last year. Yield is forecast at 5.00 tons per hectare, down 1.2 percent from last year. A decrease in the first-season crop estimate was offset by an increase in the second-season forecast.

First-season corn is planted in September and harvested in March. A larger second-season, or safrinha crop, is expected to be over 60 percent of national production. The safrinha crop is planted after the early season soybean harvest typically in January and February. The safrinha crop is harvested in June through August and is mostly exported
