The agricultural production value reached R$ 195.6 billion in 2011, a growth of 27.1% in relation to 2010, pushed at a great extent by the rise in the prices of the agricultural products both in the domestic and in the foreign market. The planted area surpassed 68.1 million hectares, a growth of 4.3% (2.8 million hectares), mainly leveraged by the expansion of soybeans (3.0%), corn (2nd harvest) (54.7%) and herbaceous cotton (69.0%).
