Brazil Creates New Corn for Northeast's Semi-Arid Region PDF Print E-mail
2005 - May 2005

Last Friday, May 27, in the state of Sergipe, the Brazilian Agricultural Research Enterprise (Embrapa), linked to the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Supply, presented a new variety of corn adapted to the climatic conditions of the Northeastern semi-arid region.

Designated as the BRS Caatingueiro, the new corn has high productivity and was developed especially for this type of region.

The new seed's cycle is considered precocious: It requires only 90 days to reach maturity in dry periods. With regular rainfall the crop can be gathered 65-70 days after sowing.

In what are considered normal climatic conditions for the region, cultivation of the BRS Caatingueiro can yield between 2 and 3 thousand kilos per hectare.

According to the Ministry's advisory office, Brazil's semi-arid region comprises 1,132 municipalities characterized by, separately or together, annual rainfall of less than 800 millimeters and a greater than 60% index of dryness and risk of drought.

The area officially classified as the Brazilian semi-arid region corresponds to 969,589.4 square kilometers.
