The article informs that Brazilian agriculture has several cost advantages over the United States, beginning with land. The land in southern Brazil isn't cheap by any standards, with land going for $1,500 to $3,000 per acre. But as you move into that central-western region where development currently is occurring, land is selling for $100 to $250 per acre. Many producers from the United States and from other parts of the world were moving in and developing that land. As Brazilians have expanded their soybean acreage along with their yields, production has skyrocketed.
