Western Bahia is known as a large agricultural complex and a producer of main crops for export, such as soybeans, coffee, sugarcane, cotton, beef and livestock, and more.
The region of West Bahia has its own special characteristics that increase its potential for large-scale mechanized farming. The landscape of West Bahia is dominated by massive, flat plateaus with dimensions of 300 by 200 km, which are conducive for developing large farms. A sufficient amount of rainfall (up to 1,800 mm per year during the 7 month long rainy season), a large supply of freshwater from three major rivers and the Urucuia Aquifer, warm weather, low risk of natural disasters and very affordable land prices in this region make it an ideal place for agricultural and farming investments today!
However, land prices are forecast to steadily rise due to the infrastructure improvements being made in Western Bahia. The construction of the West-East railway line and seaports will allow a significant reduction in transportation costs when compared to the current costs for road transportation to a large port. The railway will significantly reduce time and expenses for farmers exporting goods out of the region. So today is the time to invest!
