Brazil of Biofuels – Soy and Castor Bean 2009

Over the process of making this report, we have been to Goiás – the Brazilian state where the most serious case of slave labour in soybean plantations was found in 2008 and where soybean farmers challenge environmental rules around the Emas National Park. In south-eastern Rondônia, we have seen the advancement of soybean over the Amazon forest up close. In the state of Bahia, we met family-based farmers from the Semi-arid region, for whom castor bean is a safe income source. In Mato Grosso, we travelled the Utiariti Indian Land, where Paresi Indians plant soybean on a large scale.
