Brazil Beans
July 05, 2012

According to Conab, Brazil's government crop supply agency, the country's total dry bean production, over the three crops in 2011/2012, will be 2.9 million metric tons. This is 21.4 percent below the previous year. Drought in the northeast and a wet harvest for the second crop in Parana created the losses. Dry bean acreage in Brazil was down 18 percent this year, and yields declined four percent. Brazil is the world's largest producer of edible beans.
