Brazil’s agricultural exports rose 19.7 percent to a record $ 120.4 billion in 2021, driven by rising export prices. Soybeans, beef, sugar, poultry, wood pulp, coffee, wood, corn and cotton are the most important Brazilian agricultural exports. According to forecasts, production, especially soybeans and corn in 2022 (Iran’s most important imports from Brazil) due to drought in southern Brazil will be less than previous forecasts. Imports of agricultural products also rose 19 percent to $ 15.5 billion. Wheat, fish, vegetables, malt, fruit, dairy and olive oil are the most important agricultural imports of Brazil. Olive oil, potatoes, garlic, nuts and fruits are products with export capacity from Iran to Brazil.

The most important agricultural products of Brazil:

Brazil’s main agricultural exports are the commodity groups of soybeans (grain, meal, and oil), meat (beef, chicken, and pork), wood (wood, paper, and wood pulp), sugarcane (sugar and ethanol) and coffee. These five commodity groups together account for 81.6% of Brazil’s total agricultural exports

  • Data from Brazil’s National Food Supply Company (Conab), the country’s central bank and the Brazilian Institute of Statistics and Geography (IBGE) show that agriculture is the most productive sector of the Brazilian economy. This sector will have more production without increasing public costs, with the same amount of land available.

While the harvest increased by 4% in terms of land area; Farm productivity rose to 22.8%, which means producing 727.9 kg more grains per hectare. As a result, Brazil ranks among the world’s most productive farmers in terms of productivity and even surpasses the world’s major economic powers.

Brazil tops the list, which is part of a comprehensive study by the US and Brazilian Ministries of Agriculture, followed by China, Chile, Japan, Argentina, Indonesia, the United States and Mexico.

Brazil’s state-owned Agricultural Research Company (Embrapa) also has the highest ranking of animal protein producers and exporters in the world. Especially in poultry production, Brazil and the United States are compatible as the world’s top producers.

In terms of exports, Brazilian products have a priority in the world: 4.1 million tons per year, while the United States exports 2.9 million tons per year.

  • Brazil’s agricultural trade statistics for 2021 have recently been published separately by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture and Economy and reviewed by the Applied Economics Research Institute. Despite the fact that unfavorable climatic phenomena such as drought and frost significantly affected the production of Brazilian agricultural products in the 2020/2020 crop year; the value of the country’s agricultural exports rose 19.7 percent to a record $ 120.4 billion. The country’s agricultural imports also grew by 18.9 percent to $ 15.5 billion. With these figures, Brazil’s agricultural trade recorded a positive balance of $ 105 billion, while the trade balance of other economic sectors of the country was negative $ 43.8 billion.

Although Brazil’s agricultural exports fell by 1.2% in weight in 2021; the growth of export prices of agricultural products by 21.2% increased the value of agricultural exports of this country. 2021 was recorded as an inflationary year for agricultural products because of declining labor force use due to rising global demand (despite the slow recovery rate of global economic growth) and limited supply of agricultural products (affected by adverse weather conditions). Outbreaks of coronary heart disease, supply cycle problems, high transportation costs, the container crisis, and rising global oil prices have all pushed up agricultural prices. The 15 major Brazilian agricultural exports, which account for 89.5 percent of the country’s agricultural exports, all saw price increases
