Western Bahia is known as a large agricultural region and large producer of crops for export. Crops include soybeans, coffee, sugarcane, and cotton, along with beef and livestock. The region has unique characteristics that increase its potential for large-scale mechanized farming. The landscape is dominated by massive plateaus with dimensions of 300 by 200 km, which are conducive for developing large farms.
The region has a sufficient amount of water due to rainfall of up to 1,800 mm per year, three major rivers and the Urucuia Aquifer. In addition, warm weather, low risk of natural disasters and affordable land prices make it an ideal place for agricultural and farming investments today!
However, land prices are forecast to rise steadily due to the infrastructure improvements being made in Western Bahia. For example, the construction of the West-East railway and seaports will allow a significant reduction in transportation costs when compared to the current costs for road transportation. The railway will significantly reduce time and expenses for farmers exporting goods out of the region. So today is the time to invest!
