Veritas Agro has the tenant for the land and the land for the tenants. However, when compared with other countries, only 3,3% of brazilian agricultural land was under lease or sharecropping contracts in the lastest world census of agriculture. In contrast, this figure is about 33% in Europe and almost 38% in the United States. Considering brazil is large land area and the extensive portion of this area occupied by agriculture and pastures, the potential land rentals to increase agricultural productivity is huge. For example, estimations from Assad show that brazil accounts for over then 45 million hectares of degraded pastureland in states outside the amazon suitable for the production of sugarcane and grains. This represents more than 65% of the total brazilian cropland in 2008.
Brazil’s land rental market fall short, a real opportunity with liquidity , this niche of market is unique in the global economy, that is the reason the visionary “George Soros” finds brazilian lands the real state opportunity of the next decades and world food security.
