Brazil: Agricultural Research in Brazil

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Agriculture has always played a critical role in Brazil’s economy, serving as a primary source of revenue and central generator of employment. As modernization and urbanization developed in Brazil, a need for agricultural research arose, and the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA) was created. EMBRAPA’s mission is to increase Brazil’s agricultural yield and food production to support population growth and to develop solutions for food supply crises that arose in many cities. This report explains the history of the research entity, research goals, international cooperation, and contains an annex of ongoing research projects.
