Environmental Concerns Hit Brazil

Environmental Concerns Hit Brazil

Much like conservation regulations in the U.S., Brazilian farmers learn to protect forests and water quality

During a recent trip to Brazil, Farm Futures Senior Editor Bryce Knorr experienced first-hand the differences between Brazilian and U.S. agriculture. From farm management to grain marketing, Knorr points out that Brazilian farmers keep environmental concerns top-of-mind.
