InfoSAWIT, BRASIL – According to latest report from The Guardian, the strong interest in agricultural sector in Brasil looks for palm oil industries globally. Now Indonesia and Malaysia become the main producers where the two countries have markets about 85% in the world. Having the good area and climate, Brasil now develops palm oil areas.
According to the report, Agriculture Research Agency, Brasil, believed, agricultural sector in the country could produce and export palm oil, together with other kinds of commodity, such as, coffee, sugar, soybean, and meat. It surprised the world for there were trend of deforestation and human rights cases in the country.
After one generation struggling for poverty, stopping the deforestation, and improving the labor condition, analists told that the political mass in the country has changed the policy in Brasil. After President Dilma Rousseff was fired in last year on the charge of corruption, and the successor, Michel Temer –who involved in the ethic scandal – agreed to cancel forest protection in every region, including in Amazon.
As quoted from Reuters, palm oil development in Brasil started in the early of 2010. Years before, the former President of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva thought, palm oil is good to increase the income of the smallholders and the export. Now most of palm oil productions are in northern of Para, where the climate in Amazaon is good to cultivate it. But it needs more areas to plant palm oil, including in Amazonas, western of Para, where the areas are bushes still. (T3)
