Brazil is a vast country with plenty of natural resources and a vibrant, diverse agricultural industry. From tropical flowers and fruit to beef cattle and sugarcane, Brazil has retained its farm-based economy despite growing in other sectors by leaps and bounds over the past few decades. Brazil might be a little remote for U.S.-based travelers, but flights from hubs like Miami and Houston put it within reach. People who are seriously interested in agricultural practices will want to put this vast nation on their to-visit list because of its innovative and sustainable farming practices, which other countries are scrambling to learn and imitate.
