Famato

Famato

Day 7 Cuiaba, Mato Grosso, Brazil Early meeting with Famato which is the Brazilian equivalent of Farm Bureau. Their representatives provided us information about agriculture in the state of Mato Grosso. Mato Grosso is the third largest state. They produce 24% of the Brazilian soybean crop and 2% of the worlds soybeans. Within Brazil they are also number 1 in cattle, cotton, 2nd crop corn, and sunflower. In 2012, because of the drought in the US and a bumber crop in Mato Grosso, they produced 9% of the world crop.
