We are happy to be back in the U.S., but we couldn’t resist sharing one more post about soybean production in Argentina.
In Brazil we had the amazing experience of visiting the Bom Futuro farm in the Mato Grosso region. The Bom Futuro farm was founded in 1982, and has already grown to be the largest soybean farm in the world, with 555,000 acres of just soybeans! This does not even include what they grow for other crops or their pasture land. They also grow 170,000 acres of cotton and 260,000 acres corn all around Mato Grosso state, considering the first and the second crops.
The SD Soybean Council is on an educational mission in South America. On this mission, farmer-leaders from the SD Soybean Council will have the opportunity to witness soybean harvest firsthand in Brazil and Argentina. This should give us a good idea of how harvest will turn out for the South American crops. In addition to harvest, the group will leave with a better understanding of South American infrastructure.
