To provide an overview of the 2023/2024 harvest and trends for the 2024/2025 harvest, the 39th Soy Research Meeting (RPS), promoted by Embrapa Soja, on June 26 and 27, 2024, in Londrina (PR) , will feature André Debastiani, from Agroconsult Consultoria e Projetos. With the lecture Soybean and biodiesel production chain: GDP, jobs and foreign trade, Nicole Rennó Castro, from the Center for Advanced Studies in Applied Economics (Cepea/Esalq/USP) will open the technical program of this event.

The RPS program will also feature debates on consolidated and innovative technological solutions that can impact the soy production system. The RPS is the main forum for national soybean farming and aims to present the main research advances, discuss difficulties occurring in the soybean harvest and promote the exchange of experiences and information between those involved in the soybean chain. 

“We will promote panels and lectures on topics relevant to soy, which will address current affairs and challenges in the production systems in which soybean cultivation is inserted”, says the president of RPS Claudine Seixas (in the photo), researcher at Embrapa Soja. “Our expectation is to bring together approximately 500 professionals involved in the production chain – technicians, researchers, teachers, producers and academics”, she adds.

Soybean 

In the 2022/2023 harvest, Brazil produced more than 150 million tons of soybeans, according to the National Supply Company (Conab), which keeps the country leading the world in grain production, followed by the United States and Argentina. Currently, soy is cultivated in 20 states and the Federal District and the main producing states are: Mato Grosso (45 million tons), Rio Grande do Sul (13.018,4 million tons), Paraná (22 million tons) and Goiás (17 million tons).
