Currently, it's the beginning of corn planting season in Argentina. The ample rains can help corn seeds grow on the agricultural belt of the country, but they can also interfere with corn seeding.
On Sept. 26, 2012, the Rosario Grains Exchange estimated that the planting area of corn in Argentina might drop to 4 million ha. in 2012/13 due to the frequent rainfalls, while on Sept. 6, 2012, the Buenos Aires Cereals Exchange forecast that the corn planting area in Argentina would even lower to 3.4 million ha. in 2012/13, down 12% compared with that in 2011/12.
Although corn planting area is expected to drop, many forecasters still believe that the production of corn in Argentina will continue to increase in 2012/13 due to the high yield of GM corn.
Nowadays, many countries in South America continue to devote themselves to developing GM crops thanks to their high yield. Besides Argentina, Paraguay will boost GM cotton planting, and Uruguay approves the commercial launch of GM soybean, INTACTA RR2 PRO™, in the 2012/13 season. (1). According to some experts in Brazil, corn export volume in the 2012/13 marketing season is expected to increase by 1.6 million tonnes to 17. 1 million tonnes, higher than the previous forecast(2). Following the commercial approval of Monsanto's Bt cotton on July 14, 2012, Paraguayan government is adopting series of actions to boost GM cotton production(3). The President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, described the ban of GM crops in the Constitution as a "mistake" in an interview and opened the door to a possible amendment.(4). Russia's suspending import of GM corn will not have an effect on the sales of Brazilian corn.(5). MAPA and IBAMA regulate aerial application of pesticides containing imidacloprid, thiamethoxam, clothianidin and fipronil on soybean.(6). After the ending of previous banana emergency plan, Ecuadorian government began to deliver fungicides to small producers on Sept. 10, 2012 to help growers to control black sigatoka.(7). On Sept. 18, 2012, Syngenta announced that it will launch its product for controlling potato disease in Brazil.(8). Aprosoja urged Brazilian farmers not to plant Monsanto's Intacta RR2Pro soybean in the growing season of 2012/13.(9). Dow AgroSciences plans to build a biotechnology research center in Argentina, so as to develop its corn seed business.(10). Bayer CropScience plans to invest a large sum of money in its seed R&D, especially the soybean seed R&D in Brazil.(11). The planting area of sunflower in Argentina will increase in 2012/13(12). Rhizobium japonicum plays an important role in decreasing the usage of nitrogen fertilizers and increasing the yield of soybean in Brazil.(13). The export volume of coffee in Brazil has dropped from Jan. to Sept. 2012, and is expected to drop further in the rest of 2012.(14). Brazil's cotton harvested area will decrease in 2012/13, and its cotton production will drop as well in the same period.Brazil corn exports to increase in 2012/13Paraguay to boost GM cotton production Ecuadorian president says constitutional GM ban is a "mistake" Russia's suspending import of GM corn unlikely to affect Brazil
