CORRECTED-UPDATE 1-Brazil Feb sugar, soy, coffee, iron exports rise

 (Corrects figure for raw sugar exports)	
 * Soy, corn harvest starting to peak, exports to pick up
 * Iron ore exports higher but Carnival may have slowed trade
 SAO PAULO, March 1 (Reuters) - Brazilian sugar,
soybean, coffee and iron ore exports rose in February from
January, the Trade Ministry said on Thursday in its monthly
commodities export report.	
 Brazil's soy and corn harvest is just about to peak with the
flow of grain through the ports to pick up in the coming weeks.
Brazil's sugar and coffee harvests are still months away.
February's Carnival holiday also slowed business in Brazil.	
 Iron ore shipments recovered slightly in February after
falling sharply in January when Brazil's Vale, the world's No. 2
miner, declared force majeure due to rain that halted shipments
from one of its iron ore systems.
