Soybean growers in Brazil, the world’s second-largest producer, had sold 96 percent of the current crop as of July 13, compared with 76 percent a year earlier, researcher Celeres said in an e-mailed report today.

Corn growers in the country harvested 26 percent of the mid-season crop, being harvest now that it’s winter in the Southern Hemisphere, Celeres said in a separate report. That compares with 21 percent a year earlier.
