Agribusiness plays an important part in the Brazilian economy. According to official data, the sector is responsible for 24% of the country’s GDP and around 32% of all job positions. The United Nations argues that global productivity in the sector must rise by 70% until 2050 to guarantee food for the 9.6 billion people who will inhabit the planet by then.
