[China Packaging News] Sao Paulo, June 15: Brazil has a bumper harvest of corn and soybeans this year, but the low price has prompted Brazilian farmers to use giant plastic bags to store crops, because this method is fast and low-cost

as permanent facilities such as warehouses cannot be built immediately, the amount of grain stored by Brazilian farmers in plastic bags may reach an unprecedented level this year. Giant plastic bags can store 180 tons of grain

× Ipesa do Brasil, a well-known plastic bag manufacturer, estimates that the amount of grain stored in plastic bags may reach 15 to 20million tons, 30% higher than two years ago. The company's plastic storage bags are 60 meters long

the total grain output of Brazil this year is estimated to reach a record 234.3 million tons, an increase of 25.6% over the previous year

Andr é PESs ô a, partner of agroconsult, a consulting firm, said that this year, the sales of plastic bags in Brazil reached 80000, setting a record. If used properly, plastic bags can store grain for up to 6 months to 1 year

Jose sismeiro, President of aprosoja, said that when prices are low, farmers prefer to store soybeans rather than corn. But whether to store soybeans depends on each farmer. Farmers must invest in crops in the next 3.4 casting season when there should be no cracks, and may not be able to wait

According to PESs ô a, farmers have two things to do - selling corn and storing soybeans

ipesa said that the dimensional tolerance requirements of plastic bags but most of them have no corresponding mold cavity are driven by the winter corn harvest. Farmers move the soybeans out of the permanent warehouse and put them into plastic bags to make room for the storage of new season corn

the surge in demand for plastic bags highlights the insufficient storage capacity in major production areas such as Mato Grosso. The grain storage capacity gap in matogrosso state is estimated to be 35million tons. Mato Grosso may harvest 59million tons of corn and soybeans this year

Wellington an, manager of the association of soybean and corn growers in Mato Grosso, we would rather spend a little more money to buy imported instruments that have been used for a longer time. Drade said that in addition to the delay in soybean sales caused by low prices, the problem of insufficient storage capacity is prominent because of the harvest of new crops

so far, 5% of the winter corn harvest in Mato Grosso has been completed, and about 22% of the 2016/17 soybean has not been sold. Andrade said that without the government's corn auction to digest part of the corn, the storage problem might be more serious
