Portuguese term or phrase: washout de safra
Hello,

Does anyone know how I can translate "washout de safra" into English? This is an accounting document that says that someone has a "emprestimo no valor de USD xxx" e um "washout de safra no valor de USD xxx".

Thanks!

Daniella, I am not familiar with "washout" as a Portuguese word. For me, it means the harvest was washed out or flooded out. I believe this is what it means.
