Research

The research area of  Perdizes Farm covers 76 ha with trials for soybeans, maize, cotton and sunflower.  The studies of the cotton crop are of paramount importance, among them the definition of planting dates and the adaptability/stability of genotypes. The responses of crops to the management of nitrogen and potassium fertilizers are also being tested.
