Um Brasil que dá gosto

Creating a really tasteful Brazil.

From the very beginning, on April 26, 1973,

Embrapa has generated and recommended

more than nine thousand technologies for Brazilian agriculture, reduced production costs and helped Brazil to increase the offer of food while, at the same time, conserving natural resources and the environment and diminishing external dependence on technologies, basic products and genetic materials
