  • Mountain Farming - Experiences in a Mountain Region of Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil

    The mountainous region in Rio de Janeiro state is the main agricultural pole of the state in the production of vegetables, flowers and poultry. The region is responsible for over 90% of the leaf sold in the unit of Ceasa-RJ in Rio. In 2011, the landslide tragedy killed more than 900 people in the region and many farms were destroyed. The fertile soil disappeared under tons of mud, and in certain cases, the most superficial layer was removed leaving many farmers without the option to plant again. Embrapa, through the Center for Research and Farmers Training in Nova Friburgo, has been working with research, courses, training and dissemination of sustainable practices appropriate for that reality. This video was produced in 2015 by Embrapa Agrobiology and shows some of these practices.

  • Despite economic crisis, there's a positive forecast for Brazil's organic farms

    Organic food is proving it can make a difference in Brazil's economy. The country's been struggling to spur growth in most industries, except for the organic farming industry. CCTV America's Paulo Cabral reports from Brazil. As the economic crisis deepens in Brazil, a number of retail businesses counted their losses. But some were counting their blessings. According to a Brazilian government survey, sales of organic products grew by 35 percent last year. And the forecast for this year is for another 30 percent growth. In organic farming, workers have to manually remove the weeds that grow around the green cabbage. In conventional farming, chemicals would be used to get rid of them. Organic farmers said this kind of intensive labor is what makes their product more expensive. Despite t...

  • Fresh Fruit Producer Sergio from Brazil

    Fairtrade offers the opportunity to both fresh fruit plantations and small farmers to get a price which aims to cover their average costs of sustainable production. Additionally, producers can invest the Fairtrade Premium to improve their businesses and social and environmental conditions. For example, many producers have chosen to use Fairtrade Premium funds to convert their production to organic. Millions of people around the world -- many of them small-scale farmers in developing countries --depend on the production, processing and sale of fresh produce for their livelihoods, income and food security. Expanding production of fresh fruit offers opportunities to create employment, to raise households' incomes and generate foreign exchange earnings through exports.

We still have a lot of good land, and it is really the first one in South America. The area in Argentina is bigger because they have all this pasture, but we have more plantations here of organic products." 18. Pull out from organic products on display to wide of fair STORYLINE: The Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro is playing host this week to the BioFach organic food fair, a Latin American version of the event that normally takes place every year in Nuremberg, Germany. Brazil is South America's leading consumer and producer of organic products, with sales growing at about 30 percent per year, according to the fair's organisers. Organic food first started appearing on supermarket shelves in Brazil in 1997. Since then, the sale, consumption and production of organic products has taken off - encompassing now not just vegetables and fruits, but also products like wine, coffee and soy. In Rio de Janeiro's largest supermarket, the amount of organic products on sale has doubled since 1997, increasing 40 percent faster than non-organic products in the past year. For Maria Jose Felipe, a housewife, organic products are not just a healthier option - she says they taste better. The BioFach fair is meant to discuss ways of expanding the production and consumption of organic products in Latin America. Other South American countries are getting into the organic market as well, for example, with organic bananas coming from Bolivia and organic wine from Argentina. Organic food production in Brazil grew by 30 percent last year, accounting for 30 million US dollars in exports and 200 million US dollars in domestic sales. Brazil is also the biggest supplier of organic products to the European market. BioFach organisers say the global consumption of organic products is also growing at about 30 percent per year. Total global sales are about 25 billion US dollars per year. BioFach continues until Friday.

Organic farmers said this kind of intensive labor is what makes their product more expensive. Despite the higher prices, there's no shortage of consumers. Silva sells his produce at a farmer's market in Sao Paulo and delivers baskets of organic products to customers' houses. It's a market driven by a growing interest in sustainability and healthy eating, particularly among the middle and upper classes. Producers said the price difference between organic and conventional food has reduced over the past few years, but it's still expensive. So at least for now the organic market is expanding, but for those who can afford it.

This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish This June in Brazil, delegates will mark the twentieth anniversary of what is commonly known as the Earth Summit. The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development took place in Rio de Janeiro in nineteen ninety-two. One of the issues that the delegates plan to discuss in June at Rio+20 is the role of agriculture in climate change. A recent article written by a team of scientists says agriculture should be a top priority in climate change negotiations. It says there was some progress in this area, but not much, at the United Nations climate conference in December in Durban, South Africa. The article "What Next for Agriculture After Durban?" appeared in the journal Science. Britain's chief scientific adviser, Sir John Beddington, led the international team that wrote it to try to influence policy makers.Molly Jahn from the University of Wisconsin-Madison was one of those authors. She says efforts to guarantee food security are falling short "in significant ways that have come to our attention, especially recently with the significant price shocks." Prices on the world market have remained high since the food crisis of two thousand seven and two thousand eight. Professor Jahn says agriculture is a major producer of greenhouse gases blamed for trapping heat in the atmosphere. But agriculture also offers ways to lessen their effects with known and proven farming practices. She says agriculture is "threatened by climate change, especially in vulnerable parts of the world." But agriculture also represents "an opportunity to better manage meeting our needs, while we reduce the emissions of various greenhouse gases that are accumulating in the atmosphere."Professor Jahn says moving toward "climate-smart agriculture" should be at the center of policy considerations. The scientists call for reducing the huge amount of food that gets wasted or goes bad before it can be eaten. Another recommendation is to plant more crops that put less pressure on the environment. The article says the "integration of agriculture in the climate change negotiating process" has been moving slowly. At the same time climate change and population growth have been moving much faster. The article calls on scientists to play a bigger part in the issue by making sure climate change negotiators have clear data available. Such information, they say, could help increase investment in agriculture. For VOA Special English, I'm Carolyn Presutti. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 21Feb2012)

Joinville is located in the second most southern state of Brazil, Santa Catarina. This is how they grow rice in the region. It's a bit different than back home in that the ground, due to rain, is always wet. I meet a local rice farmer who introduces how the ground is prepared, what equipment is used and how the rice is harvested. Thank you for watching and please subscribe!

Family farmers in the Paraná region of Brazil are conserving local and traditional seeds and promoting diversification of varieties. They are supported by organisations such as AS-PTA. Access and use of these seeds creates autonomy, food sovereignty and sustainable livelihoods. The government's PAA program is playing a major role in the promotion and distribution of local seeds. In the words of one seed saver: "for family farmers, seeds are the source of life".

Both projects, Organic Tomatoes and Vetiver are social and scientific here. That means, we try to improve them, get knowledge and help other people.
