Argentine Rain Helps Relieve Corn, Soybean Crops Overnight

January 24, 2012

Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Rain fell in parts of Argentina’s main corn and soybean-producing regions overnight, helping to relieve crops parched after months of dry weather, said Tomas Parenti, an agronomist at the Rosario Cereals Exchange.

The precipitation was “relatively abundant” and fell all over the growing regions in Rosario and Venado Tuerto in the central province of Santa Fe, Parenti said by telephone from Rosario today. “Regular” rain is expected for today, he said.
