For better farm yields in Brazil, a simple registration can help

In Brazil, the tropical savanna known as the Cerrado has long been under threat from agriculture. But new land management approaches within its vast mosaic of landscapes are changing the way local people are farming it.

Covering more than 20 percent of the country’s land area – approximately half the size of Europe – the Cerrado is Brazil’s second-largest habitat after the Amazon rainforest, with areas ranging from grasslands to gallery forests to semi-arid caatinga characterized by desert-type vegetation. Not surprisingly, it is home to an enormous amount of plants and animals, with the World Wildlife Fund naming it the most biologically rich savanna in the world.
