This article focuses on prospect of growth in crop production in Brazil. Mark Waller, agricultural economist with Texas A & M University, says that Brazil has expanded its crop production greatly in recent years, but the expansion is nothing compared to what it could have been. He further adds that Brazil still has a lot of potential to expand further, and it is a low-cost competitor. From an area standpoint, Brazil is about the fifth largest country in the world, Waller says that it is a country with a lot of land area that can be used for agricultural purposes.
