History, projects and research

History

Planalto Farm began its activities in June 1985, with the cultivation of soy. In 1987, it began planting corn and in 1998, cotton. Currently, with 143 collaborators, the Farm plants soy, corn, cotton, sugarcane and other crops. At first, there was an administrative office in the city of Mineiros (GO), which was later transferred to the city of Costa Rica (MS), where it operates to date.

Social projects

Fazenda Planalto implemented the Sand and Garden Box project for Centro de Educação Infantil Ambrosina Paes Coelho and the Garden project for Instituição Educacional Cotrisa de Baús, along with the students who take care of the garden. The 5S Project is also implemented at the institution, where assessments are made by the students themselves.

Research

The research area of Fazenda Planalto occupies more than 139 ha with studies with soy, corn and cotton crops. We can highlight conduction and tests to define criteria and refinement of the use of growth regulators in cotton, management of nitrogen fertilization in corn and cotton crops, as well as tests for the identification of strategies to improve the biological activity of the soil.
