From this publication on, Ipea, in partnership with Conab, has begun the conjunctural analysis of the Brazilian agricultural sector designed for those institutions who are abroad: the Brazilian Agricultural Outlook. Besides being a sector of great relevance to the country’s economy, Brazil is one of the main players in the world agricultural market. Thus, the information produced by both institutions becomes essential to understand and forecast trends in the agricultural sector.
In this edition we present the forecast and estimate of the Agricultural GDP, as well as the area and production estimates of the main grains – soybean, corn and wheat – for 2018/2019 and, in part, for 2019/2020.
This partnership’s aim is to help disseminate information in order to improve the understanding of public and private actors, as well as the academic public as a whole.
