epa05249160 (FILE) A file picture dated 31 March 2014 shows machines during the beginning of the harvest of soy in farm Delta in Correntina, Bahia, Brazil. Brazil, one of the world's leading food producers, is projected to harvest 210 million metric tons of grain this year, down 0.6 percent from the March forecast, the government said 07 April 2016. Even with the lower forecast, Brazil's 2016 harvest would still exceed last year's record total of 209.5 million metric tons. The Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) projects that soybeans, rice and corn, Brazil's three leading crops, will account for 93 percent of farm production this year and occupy 86.9 percent of the harvested area.
