Agro, the locomotive that moves Brazil
Brazil does not stop breaking records of production and exports in agribusiness and feeds more and more people in the world. Privileged by extensive and good land, the country advances mainly in productivity, which increases the volume of grain production, especially, and animal protein. I recently saw a picture prepared by Marcelo Zakseski, from the Agronomic Knowledge website, comparing agriculture to the Olympics, which had just ended in Japan. And in this Agro Olympics, Brazil is tied in production with the world’s superpowers, the United States and China, and the largest exporter of food is by far. The table shows the countries that lead the production and export of grains, such as corn, soy, rice, wheat, plus coffee, cotton and beef, pork and chicken.
