Brazil Farm Tours

When you hear Brazil, you immediately think of the endless beaches and the Amazon Rainforest. But, did you know that Brazil is also the global leader in sugar cane production and one of the top producers of soybeans, coffee beans, and beef? You might be thinking, how does Brazil do it? Brazil’s diverse landscapes and temperate climate creates ideal conditions for crop production. Additionally, Brazil’s agricultural technological improvements draw hundreds of thousands of visitors every year to some of the largest agribusiness expositions in South America. If you are interested in Agriculture, you will want to read on to find out more about Brazil Farm Tours and South America Agriculture.

Brazil Farm Tours in the Summer

Summer in South America (winter in the Northern hemisphere) is the best time to experience Brazil’s thriving agricultural industry. From October through April, witness the planting, irrigation, and growing period of the crops up close. Harvest season for soybeans begins in January and February, so this is also an excellent time to visit. If you’re specifically interested in learning about Brazil’s farming industry and want to meet like-minded farmers, then attend the large exhibitions listed below. The most popular are the Coopavel Show Rural in February and the Expo Londrina Agricultural Show in April. These expositions will teach you new techniques to improve your crop and livestock production process.

Brazil’s Farming Expositions

#1. Coopavel Show Rural

In February, the Coopavel Show Rural takes place in Cascavel, Paraná. Paraná’s renowned fertile and temperate climate makes for impressive agricultural production. They specialize in growing sugarcane, soybean, cocoa, tropical fruits, and livestock. Along with nearby Mato Grosso, Paraná produces more than half of the country’s soybean supply. The Coopavel Show Rural draws more than 200,000 visitors each year, due to its expansive network of global farmers and appearances of leading names in Brazil’s agribusiness sector. The primary purpose of the exposition is to educate farmers about the modernization of farming and cattle raising.

The show in 2016 provided more than 480 exhibitors specializing in the latest technologies used to cultivate, irrigate, and harvest crops throughout the region. After attending the Coopavel Show Rural, take a visit to the nearby Iguazu Falls. Marvel at the sprawling Iguazu Falls that create the border between Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay.
