The estimate for the agricultural harvest in January 2018, which will be released tomorrow by the IBGE, will bring an updated list of the products surveyed. Firstly, 36 items will be reduced to 27 items and later to 18, for the first projection and estimate of the 2019 harvest. The changes were due to the loss of economic relevance of some products over time.

* Equals to two products in the overall counting.

From this update onwards, every item surveyed should represent at least 1% of the value of the national production or 1% of the Brazilian agricultural area. As a result, the 18 products together represent nearly 93% of the value of production and 97% of the Brazilian agricultural area.

The estimate and the projection of the harvest are shown in the Systematic Survey of Agricultural Production - LSPA, a survey carried out by the IBGE since 1972. The list of products will be reassessed at each five years from the analysis of the Municipal Agricultural Production - PAM, an annual survey that will remain investigating the items removed from the LSPA.
