Sao Paulo, Nov 11 (EFE) – Brazil, one of the largest producers and suppliers of food in the world, will collect in 2022 a record harvest of 270.7 million tons of grain, a volume 7.8% higher than that harvested in 2021, driven by the recovery of corn production, the government reported Thursday.

As for the harvest of this 2021, the Institute estimates that Brazil will collect 251.2 million tons of grains, which is equivalent to a drop of 1.2 % – or three million tons – compared to what was obtained in 2020.

As for production, Ibge estimated increases of 10.3% for soybean and 4.5% for rice, while cotton had its projections reduced by 17.5% and corn by 16%. EFE

According to a report from the Cordoba Grain Exchange, corn is one of the most important crops in local agricultural production; its significance is growing due to the large number of uses it can be put to, such as fodder for cattle or poultry feed, or for the generation of biofuels.

Corn production is also very important for the economy of the United States, whose corn production is overwhelming. Among its producing states, the leading state is Iowa, with 58.3 million tons, followed by Illinois, Nebraska and Minnesota. These four states together produce 136 million tons, more than double the volume of Argentina’s production.

Worldwide, up to 1.1 billion acres of agricultural land have already exhausted their productive value, undermined of the rich biodiversity that sustains them, with their soils depleted of nutrients or deprived of moisture and blown away by the wind. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimates that, given the continued deterioration of the world’s most important soil, we may have as few as 60 harvests a year before our ability to produce food is extinct

It doesn’t have to be this way. Science, economics and field experience tell us that it is entirely feasible to increase global food production without converting more natural habitats to agriculture. Regenerative agricultural practices can replenish soil on the world’s existing croplands and grasslands, conserve water and the rich biodiversity of surrounding areas, and transform the agricultural sector from a greenhouse gas emitter to a solution to climate change.
