Mato Grosso Soybeans Harvest Pictures and Early Numbers

The fun has started.
Firts fields, planted around September 25, are being harvested this week and yields have been great, particularly from new varieties that are resistant to multiple breeds of cyst nematodes. Numbers are few and I should not mention them yet(excitement mode on hold), but if confirmed on other areas they might mean a truly yield revolution in the west of Mato Grosso, a region where cyst nematodes have been causing yield losses of 10-20%(or even more) and are a bigger problem than on the rest of the state.
