History, projects and research

History

The Pamplona Farm was acquired in 1980 and was the first SLC Agrícola Farm in the Brazilian Cerrado. The Farm began planting soybeans, corn and rice. During this period, approximately 500 ha of land were planted. Its structure had an office, a warehouse, a lodging and two wooden sheds. Today, Pamplona Farm has an area of 17,911 ha. It has an own irrigation system and plant soy, cotton, corn, wheat, corn seed, soybean seed and sorghum.

Social projects

Pamplona Farm, through GAS (Environmental Action Group), conducts social actions both on the farm and in the Marajó community, an underprivileged neighborhood in Cristalina (GO). At the Souza Lima School, 20 volunteers have carried out an incentive project for six years to promote reading and writing, which attends to about 600 children. They are also carrying out social activities at the Argeu Paim Hoffamn Municipal School that is 9 km from the farm and it is the school where many of the farm employee’s children study. 300 elementary and high school children attend this school. In addition to this, GAS performs social actions in nursing homes, orphanages and the homeless shelter in Luziânia (GO).

Research

The research area of Pamplona Farm occupies approximately 129 ha, where studies are developed with cotton, soybeans, corn and wheat cultures in dry land and irrigated areas. Because a considerable proportion of the farm area is gravel, they are developing evaluations of the nutrient dynamics in these types of soil and evaluating soybeans and cotton genotypes for this type of area. Nutrient response curves in irrigated conditions have also been carried out. In the 2017/18 crop, we highlight a trial with nitrogen sources management applied on soils with different moisture conditions in a pivot area with cotton. In this Farm the nutrient extraction curves are also determined by the soybean crop destined to high yields.
