Major contributions for Brazilian agriculture

Science to transform life

Agricultural research results and positive impacts on the economy, the environment and on consumers' tables


Producing food is an activity that is rich in science and technology, but this is not always visible for the population. Agricultural research generates knowledge and technological assets that are transformed into innovation when they are materialized in the practice of agriculture, as products used by the market or consumed by citizens. The research partnership with sectors of the private initiative facilitates the application of the technologies offered by agricultural science and Embrapa has attempted to broaden such alliances.

Here you will find a significant part of the work by Embrapa and partners. They are technological solutions that have been fully incorporated by the agricultural production sector or the market, with impact measured as direct and indirect benefits to society. Browse through the topics below and learn more about how the technologies presented here have positive impact in the life of Brazilians.
