The picture has the support of institutions like the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the World Bank and the United Nations (UN) itself.

And the forecasts of these organizations show that the old idea of country of the future may, in fact, expand out of just the lyrics of songs and may reach the economy through the hands, arms and serious work of agriculture, livestock farming and agro-industry in Brazil. The year of glory may be 2017.

One of the reasons for the irrefutable Brazilian future leadership in the sector is that the country has favorable conditions for agricultural production. Brazil has natural resources that make it possible to expand production, accompanying consumer market growth tendencies, without knocking down any trees.

There are currently 388 million hectares of high-productivity fertile farmland - of which 90 million is still untouched. This factor alone already makes Brazil a country with a natural aptitude for agriculture and all the business related to its productive chains.
