Wheat production in Brazil has been insufficient to supply the internal market's demand, being thus necessary to increase production, productivity levels as well as cultivated areas. The planting process in the Cerrado region in Central Brazil is seen as an alternative to decrease wheat production's deficit in the country once the region offers advantages such as high luminosity, dry climate, higher possibility of disease control, and industrial quality grains. The types of cultivation in the re

Cereal such as wheat, rice, corn, maize, oats, sorghum, millets, triticale, and rye make up the base of human and animal foods and feeds, respectively. Many of these species contribute significantly to the sustainability of agricultural production systems in Brazil, generating jobs and boosting the country's economy. Collectively, these cultures add up to 19 millions of cultivated hectares and 47 million tons of produced grains, which is almost half of the country's total grain production. Howev

Legislation requirements and consumer demands increasingly push for food safety and quality assurances. Nowadays, generally speaking, quality indicators and contaminants are individually determined in specialized laboratories, which requires long procedures and expensive reagents and makes the analysis of large volumes of samples impracticable. The quick obtainment of analysis results to identify the presence of contaminants and characterize the technological suitability of grains and derivat

Brazil annually consumes 10.5 million tons of wheat, half of which is produced in the country, which entails an approximate outlay of 800 million dollars in wheat imports. The high cost of production and the difficulties in the obtention of cultivars with technological qualities that meet market requirements are among the main limiting factors for the Brazilian wheat production chain. Out of all the cultivars available from all Brazilian breeders, about two thirds were created from germplasm

GM crops that are resistant to glyphosate have created a new scenario in Brazilian agriculture. Glyphosate has been generally used mainly in soybean farms in the Brazilian states of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina and Paraná. In the state of São Paulo, glyphosate is widely used in orchards, especially citrus ones. The repeated use of glyphosate has given rise to cases of weed resistance to this herbicide in different places of the country. The trend is that new glyphosate resistant crops such ...

In order to avoid that herbicide-resistant weed growth hinders the use of agricultural land and renders the technology of resistant crops inefficient, monitoring is essential for Brazilian agriculture, as it allows the early identification of resistance foci to define containment measures and regionalized management alternatives. Therefore, the goal of this project is to maintain the mapping of herbicide-resistant weeds and to establish strategies for the prevention and management of glyphosate

Brazil is a tropical country with an extensive territorial area and vast plant diversity. This makes the weed species that infest the crops be widely varied. Such characteristics differentiate Brazil from other countries with temperate climates. GM crops that are resistant to herbicides, especially to glyphosate, have created a new scenario for weed control in Brazilian agriculture. Farmers have adopted RR technology right away as efficiency and cost are its main benefits. The use of glyphosate

From an economic point of view, Brazilian agribusiness has been recognized as modern, prosperous, profitable and competitive activity whose magnitude has established Brazil as a world agricultural power. The activity accounts for 26% of the gross domestic product, 42% of the volume of Brazilian exports, and 37% of the total number of jobs in the country. The finding from this scenario is that development in the country is strongly dependent on an increasing production of agricultural products

Epidemics of Diseases whose Pathogens are Transmitted by Insects (EDTIs) are frequent and impactful in the areas of human, animal and plant health. Due to its complexity, understanding the dynamics of EDTIs requires the accumulation of epidemiological data from monitoring networks and the use of models that establish the chain of relations between their components and calculate, under environmental oscillations, the rate and progress of the biological processes. This project proposes to develop
