Minas Gerais, Brazil, Shooting for a US$ 43 Bi Agribusiness GDP

A farm in Minas Gerais, Brazil Minas Gerais, a state in the Brazilian Southeast, wants to end the year with a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of 71 billion Brazilian reais (US$ 42.8 billion) for agribusiness. In the month of January, the sector growth was 1.18% over the same month in 2007, above the national average of 0.87%.

The figures are part of the report by the Center of Advanced Studies in Applied Economics (Cepea), ordered by Minas Gerais's  Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (Seapa) and by the Federation of Agriculture and Livestock of Minas Gerais (Faemg).

The livestock GDP of Minas Gerais stood out in the sector and grew 1.82% in January this year when compared to the same month in 2007. According to the Cepea, the prices of livestock products, both for the producer and for industry, are much higher than those observed in early 2007.

According to the superintendent of Agricultural Economic Policy at the Secretariat of Agriculture, João Ricardo Albanez, all the livestock sectors posted growth in the first month of the year. One of those that contributed most to the GDP was the sale of raw milk and live cattle.

The study shows that growth of the agricultural GDP of Minas Gerais in the first month of the year was 0.53%. The rising prices of inputs favored the performance.

"Corn and soy crops should present modest growth in this harvest, but there has been a significant increase in prices paid to farmers," explained Albanez.

With the expansion of the agribusiness productive chain, its participation in the GDP of Minas has risen from 48% in 2007 to 48.5% in the first quarter of this year, whereas the agricultural productive chain answers to 51.5%.
