Farming has been at the very heart of Brazil’s story of social and economic development. From providing hope and opportunities for the masses of migrants in the 19th century, to making Brazil nutritionally self-sufficient in the 20th and building the country into the food exporting powerhouse it is today, farming is deep-rooted in the country´s society and psyche.
Over the last decades private and public investments in technology, sustainability and entrepreneurship have revolutionised the concept of farming on tropical lands. Brazil has been a trailblazer in developing and realising the concept of tropical agriculture. A focus on the recovery of unfertile lands, sustainable yield-enhancement techniques, integrated farming practices, and the sustainable management of natural vegetations and the world’s richest biodiversity means we have been able to do more with less: NASA’s 2017 satellite map confirms that all cropland covers only 7.6% of Brazilian territory. Brazil is today one of the most efficient agriculture producers and leading agricultural exporters globally, and a key player in feeding the world. It manages to do so while also applying some of the strictest environmental protection laws for the agricultural sector anywhere in the world.
