SAO PAULO Aug 29 (Reuters) - A sharp drop in Brazil's corn output in 2015/16 that reduced the flow of the grain from farmlands to the port has pushed up freight costs on the return trip for fertilizer, the Chief executive officer of Fertilizantes Heringer said on Monday.

The reduced flow of trucks carrying corn to Brazil's southern ports has pushed up the cost of getting fertilizer to farms in the interior of Brazil, said Dalton Carlos Heringer, CEO of the country's third-largest distributor of the crop input.
