The intense cold, caused the browning of the core region to fall, leaving 23% of the surface of wheat in a regular condition. No plants have been lost, but intense frosts left their mark, especially in Cordoba. Fortunately, the abundance of leaves absorbed the thermal shock, the meristems have been saved and plant losses in the stands have been avoided. But, although technicians are generally inclined to say that the performance would not be affected, in areas badly damaged as in Noetinger, farmers are not sure of this and want to observe how it ends up evolving the crop in the coming weeks. For now, everyone agrees that the recovery will be very slow and we must be aware of the weeds that are already starting to appear.

They also returned to plant those in which the implantations had failed because of water excesses. The south center of Santa Fe and southeast of Cordoba practically finished the sowing.

December corn: North of Buenos Aires with the highest yields
Corn sown in December in the north of Buenos Aires climbed the podium with 9 tn/ha, leaving behind the 7 tons that average the rest of the region. Harvest takes 75%. In some places, grain moisture does not give way. Some farmers begin to choose to pay for the drying
