About 20 Brazilian farmers recently met with Blue Mound farmer Pete Pistorius to discuss farming technology. One of them, Allessandro Colombo who farms 5 thousand acres in the Brazilian state of Parana, said the current trade conflict between China and the US could easily turn against Brazil…

So, this tariff war, let’s put it that way going on between the US and China is something that also worries us. Because right now, it is affecting the US grower. And it is benefitting us, Brazilian soybean growers, but we have been there as well. Today, you are being affected, but in the future it could be us.

Has it economically helped Brazilian farmers, has it helped with prices and profitability?

Allessandro Colombo (Portuguese)
Walter (interpreter)

Yes, indeed. We are being benefited right now. We are getting a premium for the soybeans we are selling to China, because they are only buying beans from us, for now.

Do you plan to increase your soybean acreage as you will be planting here in the next month or so?

Allessandro Colombo (Portuguese)
Walter (interpreter)

In the area where I grow, I could not increase my soybean acreage. I think I am at the limit. But if you consider Brazil as a whole, I think there is a slight upward trend in terms of soybean acreage increase.
