Summary "Brazil has become one of today's major producers and net exporters of grains. This was achieved by converting barren land into one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world. Since the mid-1970s, the tropical savanna, known as Cerrado, has been transformed into one of the world's largest grain-growing areas. The transformation of Cerrado is one of the crucial factors that enabled Brazil's impressive poverty reduction both through generating jobs and inclusive growth as well as through increasing food and nutrition security. Innovative technologies and institutions were introduced and developed to uphold environmental and ecological conservation. The experiences of the Cerrado related in this book will be of great value to contemporary developing countries struggling to attain food and nutrition security, value chains, employment and inclusive growth, and sustainable development"-- Provided by publisher.
