This effort helped change Brazil in innovative genetics biotechnology, agriculture R&D, and technology transference among others. Nowadays, our agriculture is one of the most efficient and sustainable in the planet. We incorporated a wide area of degraded cerrado lands to productive systems; a region that now accounts for nearly 50% of our grain production. We quadruplicated the supply of beef and pork and expanded 22 times the chicken supply. These are some of the achievements that took the country from a condition of basic food importer to one of the largest food producer and exporter.
