    The January/February harvest is the smallest. The highest is from June/July/August.

    Brazil is the only country in the world with 2 harvests of corn, soybeans and cotton. Brazil has the highest average productivity in the world.

    Brazil has less than half the area planted in relation to the second world producer: USA

    With Bolsonaro's policy of advancing the planting area on the Amazon Forest, Brazil will swallow the competition.

    As Brasileiro correctly states “Brazil will swallow the competition”. Question: at what cost to the environment, global heating, damage to the Earth in general? Or perhaps that's not an issue to be taken into accoount.
