    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    The rampant deforestation of the Amazon began in the 1970s when the government of Brazil determined they needed to build over 9,000 miles of roads help integrate the rainforest with the populated bordering areas... Widespread contamination of Brazil’s soil and water, the marked decrease of oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere and the extinction of countless plants and animals made scientists extremely concerned about the planet’s future... At its worst, Brazilian deforestation claimed over 11,000 square miles a year. With education, advocacy, and widespread support of the Brazilian government, the destruction of the vital forests dropped 84% to 1,700 square miles in 2012... When National Politics and Environmentalism CollideIn 2012, the Brazilian Congress passed a widespread weakening to what is known as the Forest Code...

    How Farmers Conduct Their Own On-Farm Research to Improve Production

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated Mar 1 

    With last year’s season completed and this year’s yet to begin, now is a natural time to reflect on your farm’s performance and how you can improve in the future. One way to make your decision-making process even better is by conducting your own on-farm research. It’s a process the Hardwick brothers and Nick McMichen have gained tremendous value from using on their respective operations. Here they share how they got started, how they design their trials, and the tools and technologies they use to make it happen...

    Precision Farming Solutions for Weeds in Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Sep 10, 2020 

    The weed control measures used in soybean production need to be overhauled. The development of resistance in weeds has made current technology and management increasingly expensive and comes accompanied with heavy yield losses. Precision management solutions can reduce chemical use in several ways... Soybean is the crop with the largest monoculture in the world and with 90% of it grown in Argentina, Brazil, the United States, China, and India... In the USA more than 93% of soybean crops use GR (glyphosate-resistant) technology, and in Brazil and Argentina, it is 80% and 99%, respectively...

    From rich milk to delectable sauce: Opportunities in the soybean industry

    By SHARATH CHANDRAN U.S

    Updated Aug 9, 2020 

    Who hasn’t heard of the term “soy” or “tofu”? Especially in the vegan community, soy-based foods have become more of a cultural facet than a regular food item. The soybean or soya bean is widely cultivated in several parts of the world. But, Brazil and the US lead the industry with 126 and 124 million tonnes of production respectively (FAOSTAT, 2018) which is roughly 70% of the world's production. In the US, soybeans are the second largest produced crop after corn. The bulk of the production is directed towards oil extraction and use as animal feedstock...

    Understanding Agrilend and the MERCOSUR

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 17, 2018 

    The MERCOSUR is a powerful dominant force in international global markets and originally began with its Members;Bolivia, Venezuela, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina as direct Member Countries, in South America, however it is rapidly gaining momentum by its cooperative Associate Member Countries in Central America and its international prowess relies on its ability to cooperate confidential public private initiative agreements with cooperating countries desiring to do corporate business attached with attractive concensions by partnering with MERCOSUR for the sake of obtaining finance, capital, agricultural export or import, natural resources and as an exchange for favor... It began its path of greater cooperation in International Trade Finance of Agriculture by the signing of the Iguazu Declaration, signed by Presidents Raul Alfonsin of Argentina and Jose Sarney of Brazil on November, 29, 1985... In this very important declaration, by Presidents Raul Alfonsin of Argentina and Jose Sarney of Brazil both presidents indicated joint positions of a number of economic and foreign policy issues and even though this treaty began in South America... The reference to South America instead of other regions (like Latin America or the Southern Cone) has increased in the last decades due to changing geopolitical dynamics (in particular, the rise of Brazil) It is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean and on the north and east by the Atlantic Ocean; North America and the Caribbean Sea lie to the northwest. It includes twelve sovereign states (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Perú, Suriname, Uruguay, and Venezuela), a part of France (French Guiana), and a non-sovereign area (the Falkland Islands, a British Overseas Territory though this is disputed by Argentina)...

    Brazil’s farmers dump sugar for soy as U.S.-China trade war boosts demand

    Last year, Brazilian farmer Gustavo Lopes sized up his sugarcane plantation against his soybean fields.

    He looked at global trends, including rising U.S.-China trade tensions and a stubborn sugar-market glut. Then he tore up the last of his cane fields and ditched a decades-old supply contract with a local sugar mill.

    Lopes planted soybeans across his 1,600-hectare farm in Sao Paulo state – a bet that paid off earlier this month when Chinese buyers loaded up on South American soy after Beijing imposed tariffs on U.S. beans. The farmer got his highest price ever for soybeans.

    “It was unusual for this time of year,” Lopes said in an interview at his farm, where he’s prepping to plant another soy crop in September. “It’s got to be a result of Chinese demand.”

    Shifting trade flows are redefining the Brazilian landscape, spurring more farmers to align their crops with Chinese appetites. The nation’s soy plantings have expanded by 2 million hectares in two years – an area the size of New Jersey – while land used for cane shrank by nearly...
