Brazil's agricultural sector.
Agriculture is an important source of growth in Brazil. In 2019, production and export levels were high, driven by corn and beef; although still strong, soybean exports decreased last year. Favoured by weather conditions and productivity increases, overall production in the primary sector may rise again in 2020. However, the sector faces challenges, primarily relating to the international context and controversies fuelled by the government.
