Agricultural production expected to fall by 4.5% in the 2020/21 campaign

The agricultural production of the 2020/21 campaign will reach 135 million tons, including the cotton harvest, a decrease of 4.5% concerning the previous cycle, according to a projection made by the consulting firm Investigaciones Económicas Sectoriales (IES). It is due to the possible impact of the La Niña climate phenomenon that would affect yields and the final volume harvested, despite the recovery of international prices for corn and soybeans.
