Brazil soybean harvesting at 34.2% of area as rains delayed field work

SAO PAULO, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Brazilian soybean farmers have harvested 34.2% of the planted area through Friday, in line with a historical average but below last year’s level of 46.3%, when producers were able to plant and pluck the plants earlier due to good weather, according to agribusiness consultancy Arc Mercosul on Friday.

Arc Mercosul said heavy rainfall slowed field work in some states this week, citing Mato Grosso do Sul, the west of Mato Grosso and Minas Gerais. (Reporting by Roberto Samora Writing by Ana Mano Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
