The silos, located in Tapurah, Vipishi, Carazinho, Ranchao and Caarapo in central Brazil’s fertile Mato Grosso region, will comp-lement ADM’s existing network of 80 elevators and warehouses in Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia.
The new silos should begin accepting grain deliveries by next year’s crop season, ADM officials said.
