Abstract

The agricultural trade surplus for Brazil in FY2013 reached US$82.9 billion, far surpassing that of the United States, which stood at US$40.1 billion (US Department of Agriculture (USDA) in Accessed April 2016. http://www.usda.gov/topics/international-market-trade/us-agricultural-trade.aspx, 2013). Brazil is now the largest net exporter of agricultural produce in the world, having overtaken the U.S. Agricultural development in Brazil is supported by soybean products (soybean, soy meal, soy oil), corn, cotton, coffee, and meats (beef, poultry, and pork) that are produced in the Cerrado area. Agriculture in the Cerrado area has been developed dynamically, largely driven by the introduction of soybeans, which was in full swing as of the 1980s, as well as the development of a value chain that builds on this product (Mizobe 2014).
