Group of farmers raises $11.4 mm through green certificates

A group of seven grain producers from the Central-West region raised last week R$63.6 million ($11.4 mm) by issuing agribusiness receivables certificates (CRAs) with the commitment of not deforesting, even legally, and of recovering forests in permanent preservation areas, in addition to productive commitments. The properties involved, in Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul, cover 78,452 hectares and produce soy, corn and cotton.
