The Brazilian soy industry looks for strategies to overcome foreseen difficulties in the future
Even with the difficulties faced during the year, the 2020/2021 cycle’s final balance showed optimistic data for soy producers: more than 137 million tons were harvested, and according to forecasts, this number will be surpassed in the 2021/2022 harvest. According to Antônio Galvan, president of Aprosoja Brasil, the specific problems that affected crops, mainly in the southern states of the country, did not significantly affect the progress of crop production.
The excesses observed in Brazil’s extreme climate, with Bahia’s high rainfall, the South’s intense heat, and Mato Grosso’s intense humidity, are still a threat in future scenario analysis, and Galvan had doubts about the possibility of reaching previously projected numbers from other bodies, which indicated the surpassing of 145 million tons of Brazilian soy.
Brazil currently represents 1/3 of global soy production, making it the world's largest supplier. This puts the country at the center of the world agribusiness stage, which requires greater attention to sustainability and environmental preservation issues as a whole, especially in view of the European Union’s last issue discussed in parliament, which aims to stop importing agricultural commodities into open areas after 2020.
