Brazil has a unique approach to farming which is distinct to anywhere else in the world – the concept of ‘tropical agriculture’. Our approach is based on principles of sustainability all throughout the value chain, from low-carbon technology to quality and traceability, from the conservation of our biodiversity to social and economic development.

This unique method means that we have some of the best animal husbandry and welfare in the world, as well as a some of the toughest environmental protection measures anywhere. We can offer some of the most sustainable agricultural products in the world.

Brazil produces a wide variety of quality agricultural produce across the full range of sectors. The fourth largest agricultural exporter in the world, Brazil is the world’s  largest producer and exporter of sugar (and ethanol), coffee and orange juice. It is also the world’s leading exporter of poultry, beef and soyabean, of which it’s the world’s second biggest producer. Find out more about each of Brazil’s key agricultural sectors below.

Allied with its emphasis on research and innovation, Brazilian farming also places a huge focus on lifelong learning of farmers and farm workers. Since its inception in 1991, Brazil’s national rural learning service SENAR has trained over 70m people on topics from water management to precision farming, from entrepreneurial skills to youth- and women-focused programmes. This has transformed lives on the land and made Brazil one of the world’s leaders in agricultural education and training.

Here you’ll find key data, resources and reports about Brazilian agricultural production and exports.
