Informa Economics Inc. has introduced a new Brazilian Crop Service, including a new Brazilian Crop Report and Weekly Crop Condition Index Report.


The monthly Brazilian Crop Report will include area, yield and production estimates at the national level and a breakout of estimates for the major crop production states, and is tentatively scheduled to be released the last weekday of October, November, January, February and March with a final production estimate report available the first week in May. The Weekly Crop Condition Index Report will begin in mid-November and continue throughout the growing season. Three Internet-based Brazilian crop production estimates seminars will also be given each year at critical points in the growing season.
