Global Maize Project in Brazil: Itiquira, Mato Grosso

IPNI-2009-BRA-GM18

Higher intensification of cropping systems will be necessary to attend future demands of corn production. The ecological intensification seeks for production systems of cereals that satisfy these future demands while at the same time establish cultivation with minimum interference to the environment.

Interpretive Summary

Cropping system intensification will be necessary to meet the future demand for corn (maize). Ecological Intensification (EI) seeks cereal production systems that satisfy future demands, while developing cultivation practices with minimum interference to the surrounding environment. A Global Maize Project (GMP) site was established to identify gaps in yield between the current technology and improved technology aimed at achieving EI.
