The Gross Value of Agricultural Production (GVP) for 2022, obtained based on information from August, is estimated at R$2,534,890,092.00 for the State of Acre. The current government has a bold goal, which is to double this amount in the coming years.
And how could that be possible? “Unbureaucratic environmental licensing, access to rural credit, implementation of the agricultural mechanization project, technical assistance”, replies the Secretary of Production and Agribusiness, Edvan Maciel.
Crops in Acre in general may not advance much in 2022, but others already stand out: the GVP of corn is already growing 39% higher than in 2021, and that of coffee, 22%.
In the country, the production value reaches R$ 1,207.41 trillion, with a slight downward trend (-0.3%) compared to last year. In relation to 2021, the VBP of crops showed an increase of 1.7% in real terms, while livestock had a decrease of 4.4%.
The reduction in the prices of beef, pork and chicken led to a drop in the value of this year’s production. In livestock, milk and eggs were the exception in this group, which rose by 2.7% and 3.9%, respectively.
Another product that contributed to the drop in the GVP was soybeans, whose main factor associated with the reduction in sales was the decrease in production, since the average prices for the year show no signs of reduction.
For the soy complex, made up of grains, bran and oil, exports from January to July this year generated revenue of US$ 43.78 billion, and meat, US$ 14.6 billion.
Most of the products analyzed presented a positive contribution to the formation of the VBP. Cotton recorded an increase of 27.7% in real revenue, bananas 13.6%, potatoes 13.8%, coffee 35.9%, sugarcane 10.2% cassava 9.2%, corn 13.9% , tomato 23.8% and wheat 40.4%. Others with less prominence are peanuts, beans, castor beans and cassava. The products of this relationship represent 52.5% of the total GPV.
This year, cotton, coffee, corn and wheat presented record values in a series of 33 years, starting in 1989. Especially corn and wheat presented exceptional production volumes: corn 110.0 million tons and wheat 9.7 million .
For the products that stood out for their positive contribution, prices were a decisive variable in the results. Some products such as cotton, coffee, tomatoes, wheat, potatoes, bananas and tomatoes show strong price increases compared to 2021.
Regional results show the leadership of Mato Grosso, Paraná, São Paulo and Minas Gerais in generating value in agriculture. In absolute values, the amount is R$ 642.9 billion, which corresponds to 53.2% of the total VBP.
