The Brazilian Way

Tropical agriculture explained

The Brazilian Farmers are part of The Brazilian Confederation of Agriculture and Livestock (CNA). We are an employer’s organization representing over two million small, medium, and large-scale farmers engaged in various areas of agriculture and livestock. It is our mission to represent, organize, and strengthen rural producers at a national and international level.

Founded in 1951, CNA is today Brazil’s main forum for agribusiness policy discussion. Our system gathers 27 state federations and 2,000 rural unions supporting producers throughout the country. It also includes the National Rural Learning Service (SENAR), which provides training, social initiatives, and technical assistance to rural areas.
