Impeller of the economy, agriculture and cattle raising will have an increase of R $ 30 billion in GDP

Brazil Producer

Studies projected growth of 10.74% in all Brazilian production this year. Productivity in the field and sale of animal protein to the outside rose

With a robust harvest plan, coupled with support and development tools organized by the government, agriculture and cattle raising is expected to generate record wealth for Brazil in 2017.

Studies show that the branch can grow 10.74% this year - an increase of more than R $ 30 billion for the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Data from the National Supply Company (Conab), the Central Bank and the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) show that agriculture has become the most productive sector of the Brazilian economy. Without increasing public spending, it was possible to do more with almost the same amount of land.

While the planted area increased by 4%, field productivity increased by 22.8% in the 2016/2017 harvest - that means 727.9 kilos of additional grains per hectare. The result put Brazil at the top of the ranking of most productive countries in the field, surpassing even the great economic powers.

The list, which is part of a survey of the United States Department of Agriculture and the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, begins with Brazil and continues with China, Chile, Japan, Argentina, Indonesia, the United States and Mexico.

Brazilian meat

Survey of the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) places Brazil among the largest producers and exporters of animal protein. In the case of chicken, Brazil and the United States compete for the position of major producers.

In exports, the Brazilian product has the world's preference: while we sell 4.1 thousand tons per year, the Americans sell 2,9 thousand tons. In pork, the country is among the five largest producers and exporters.
