Brazil

Embrapa's Top Priority Programs

  • Appraisal, Management and reclamation

  • Of Natural Resources

. Organizing and systematizing information on

natural resources

2. Genetic Resources & Biotechnology

. Conservation of genetic resources

3. Biotechnology

. Based on market oriented demands

. Developing new varieties resistant to stress from

agroecological systems


Brazil

5. Vegetable Production

Embrapa's Top Priority Programs

4. Grain Production

. Production technology for grains

. Soybeans, rice, beans corn and sorghum,

wheat, sunflower, cowpea, barley, and triticale

. The generation of technology processes, knowledge and competitive products for the fruit, vegetable and cassava sectors

6. Animal Production

. Developing techniques and strategies for the rational

exploration of the main species important for the

economy


Brazil

Embrapa's Top Priority Programs

7. Environmental Quality

. Evaluating environmental quality and

agricultural sustainability

8. Small Farm Agriculture

Generate or adapt technology and know how capable of establishing a developmental process, better conditions for the stability and multiplication of small farming units and in this way better the quality of life of the small farmer and his family founded on greater integration of market economy conditions


Brazil

  • 40 Research Units,

  • and 15 central units

Embrapa co-ordinates the National Agricultural Research System, consisting of universities, research institutes and state research corporations.

The company has ongoing technical and scientific co-operation programs with more than 150 institutions from 56 countries.

Conclusion

Embrapa's research has enabled Brazil to significantly increase Agriculture production.

Soybean production has increased by 360%; maize, by 128%; wheat, by 49%; and rice and beans, by 27%.

Research has also enabled farmers to produce soybean in the cerrado, to eliminate numerous pests and to grow fruit in the semi-arid region.

It has also developed alternative logging techniques that prevent the destruction of forests.
