Globo Rural, Alexandre Lima Nepomuceno in 05/07/2021

Within two years, Brazilian soybean growers will have a national methodology capable of certifying that their production has low emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs). This is the focus of the Low Carbon Soy Program, coordinated by Embrapa Soja.

The objective is to develop objectively measurable, reportable and verifiable criteria, based on internationally recognized scientific protocols. Soy produced within the parameters established by the research will be certified as low carbon emission, which will add value to this important agricultural product in the country.
