The numbers reflect two surprises, according to the IBGE: the production records of soy and corn, the main products of the Brazilian crop. Summer climatic conditions have favored crops. Soy should grow 23.4% compared to 2022, with production of 147.5 million tons. As for corn, the expectation is for an increase of 11.2%, with production of 122.5 million tons.

Other important products in the harvest are rice (10.3 million tons), wheat (8.7 million tons) and cotton (6.8 million tons). Coffee deserves to be highlighted for contradicting previous forecasts of decline. The estimated production for this year is 3.3 million tons, up 5.7%.

The forecast is for growth in the five regions of the country: Midwest (8.6%), North (11.1%), Southeast (1.0%), Northeast (1.8%) and South (38.6%). %). In the classification of states, the highest estimates are for Mato Grosso (29.3%), Paraná (14.9%), Rio Grande do Sul (13.0%), Goiás (9.2%), Mato Grosso do South (8.1%) and Minas Gerais (5.8%).
