    According to a report released by safras on Monday, Brazil's soybean harvest had reached 24% by March 24, down from 35% last year "While states like Sao Paulo have made a little progress, the gains are still 10-15 days slower than normal The focus is still on weather, environment and crop aluminum yield " Safras reports The main delay in harvest occurred in Parana, the largest soybean producing state, which exports about 25% of the country So far, the state has achieved 21% of its harvest, compared with 51% at this time last year and an average of 54% in five years It is estimated that Parana's harvest will continue, as there is only sporadic rainfall in the soybean producing areas of the state Mato Grosso, the main soybean producing area in the central and western regions, is the only state with fast harvest progress At present, about 49% of the harvest has been completed, about 2 percentage points faster than the average of last year and five years This season has allowed the state to harvest earlier than expected this year But excessive rainfall in early February delayed the harvest Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil's third largest soybean producer, has not been harvested until mid April Brazil's soybean growing season usually starts in September, but the drought forced farmers in the southern Brazilian soybean belt to stop working because they had to wait for enough rain to germinate the seeds In response, the country's soybean harvest has become irregular, with southern states such as Parana and Rio Grande do Sul progressing later than normal Last week's rainfall was good for alleviating drought in some areas, but it delayed harvesting in some areas QUT
