Brazil Expects Agriculture to Grow 5.5%, More than Country’s GDP

Farm field in Brazil The agricultural sector in Brazil should grow 5.5% this year. This forecast was disclosed by the Brazilian Central Bank (BC) and is part of the Quarterly Inflation Report, which includes several estimates about the economy of the country.
