From soybean production to coffee exports to sugar cane, grains and tropical fruit - agriculture is powering the Brazilian economy.
We travel to a farm outside the capital Brasilia, and look at how the country could play a major role in providing the world with food security in the years ahead.
And we consider a major threat to agriculture – climate change, which is forcing Brazilian farmers to adapt to survive.
We talk to the Brazilian head of the International Coffee Organisation – on what her home country can do to deal with extreme weather events.
And away from agriculture, we consider Brazil’s heavy industry, and ask why it hasn’t made more of its rich musical heritage.
Produced and presented by Gideon Long.
