Cerrado

The expansion of the Brazilian agricultural frontier

Brazil’s second largest biome is fertile ground for agriculture and livestock production. The Cerrado vegetation, typical of the savannas, includes low shrubs in grassy areas, which extend through the plateaus and lowlands so typical of Brazil´s central areas. The region is home to many wild animal life species. The dry winter and rainy summer favored the emergence of plant species of great commercial potential, such as pequi, baru, mangaba, cagaita, buriti, jatobá, cajuí, arnica, mama-bitch, faveira, gueroba, murici, carnaúba, babaçu, palm trees, and many others.
