These graphs show the changes in emissions, emissions drivers, and policy in the Agriculture sector in Brazil
Emissions Non-CO₂ greenhouse gas emissions
Both land under cultivation and non-CO₂ emissions increased.
Emissions Drivers Agricultural production intensity
Although the intensity of food production per hectare increased, mechanization did not increase.
Policy Subsidies to agricultural producers
Brazil made increasing the productivity of agricultural land a priority to reduce expansion into new land and deforestation. Subsidies to producers, in part to modernize their operations, steadily increased over time.
