The program allows the purchase of products from public stocks without intermediaries. The corn to be removed is stocked in Mato Grosso and will be destined to municipalities in several states.
In Acre, Rio Branco is included in the list (400 t). In Bahia, Entre Rios (1 thousand t), Itaberaba (1 thousand t), Ribeira do Pombal (2,1 thousand t), Irecê (3,8 thousand t) and Santa Maria da Vitória (150 t).

In Maranhão, Imperatriz (2 thousand tons) and São Luís (1.2 thousand tons). In Paraíba: João Pessoa (2 thousand t). In Pernambuco, Arcoverde (2 thousand tons) and Recife (4 thousand tons). In Rio Grande do Norte, Natal (5 thousand tons), Açú (2.5 thousand tons), Mossoró (2 thousand tons), Caicó (2 thousand tons), Currais Novos (2,5 thousand tons), João Câmara , 5 thousand t) and Umarizal (1.8 thousand t).

The product will be offered with subsidy, for the amount of R $ 33 a bag of 60 kg, authorized by the Interministerial Board of Public Stock (Ciep). According to Interministerial Ordinance No. 780, published in the Federal Official Gazette on April 7, the creators enrolled in the program will be able to purchase up to 10 tons of corn per month, limited to the consumption of their stock, until December 31. For acquisition, it is necessary to register in the Technical Register of the Conab Sales Counter Program and to present the requested documentation.
The auction also contracted the shipment of 500 tons of grain corn to the city of Rio de Janeiro. For the Southeast, however, the subsidy provided for in Ordinance No. 780 does not apply and the price of the 60 kg bag is calculated every two weeks with reference to the local wholesale market, with a breeder limit of 14 tonnes per month.
