Role of science in the development of soybeans in Brazil - Soybean cultivation has grown the most in Brazil over the last five decades. “We can affirm that the continuous increase in soybean productivity, per hectare, is based on science and technology, allowing producers to adopt the best technologies in Brazilian agricultural production. Brazil is thus able to produce more in less space and with great efficiency”, highlights the general manager of Embrapa Soja, Alexandre Nepomuceno. 

In the 2022/23 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.
