Welcome to the latest in our e-book series: Tech and scale – the drivers of Brazil’s ag sector
Brazil’s transformation into a global agricultural powerhouse has been built on technology and scale. In this e-book, we look at some of the fastest growing markets.
“We’re seeing the tip of the iceberg,” said Antonio Carlos Zem, founder of BioTrop, when talking to New AG International about the revolution taking place in Brazil’s biological market. We feature the company’s bio-product for pastures.
Part of the success of biologicals depends on the formulation. We hear from Dr. Daniela Kruse of Evonik, which has launched a new multifunctional carrier that helps to extend the shelf-life of biological formulations.
We also have an exclusive interview with PwC and AgTech Garage. In November 2022, PwC, the global professional services giant, announced the acquisition of AgTech Garage, the largest Agribusiness open innovation hub in Brazil.
Agribusiness is one of the most important sectors of the Brazilian economy representing approximately 26% of the Brazilian GDP, according to PwC Agribusiness Leader Mauricio Moraes.
There are also features on specialty fertilizer, probiotic technology, and Brazil’s creation of a bio-inputs programme. As well as well latest news, such as Tradecorp’s new research centre in Brazil, and Nutrien acquiring ag retailer Casa do Adubo.
