Podcast “Biochar for soil quality and farming sustainability in Brazil”

It is estimated that by 2050 food production will have to serve a population of 9 billion people. Brazil, in turn, is the second largest meat producer in the world, with lands for cattle raising comprising about 158 ​​thousand hectares of the rural area in the country *. Due to the degradation of pastures, which compromise productivity, owners tend to seek more productive lands, demanding a greater amount of deforested areas.

Aiming a more sustainable model in the use of pastoral lands, the director of IIS, Agnieszka Latawiec, led an article on the use of biochar in the recovery of desolated land in degraded landscapes, inspiring the podcast “Biochar for soil quality and farming sustainability in Brazil”.
