Brazil: soybean production volume 2010-2020

Soybean production in Brazil was estimated at more than 122 million metric tons in crop year 2019/2020, up from approximately 115 million tons in the previous crop year. This crop's annual production in the country has been increasing overall since the crop year 2011/12, when it amounted to 66.4 million tons.

Soybeans in Brazil

Soybeans are one of the most important crops in Brazilian agriculture, and comprised more than a third of the sector’s production value in 2018. The country is the second largest global producer of this oilseed, ranking only behind the United States. Production is forecast to continue increasing in the upcoming years.

Uses of soybeans

This commodity's importance is at least partially related to its versatility in use. Soybeans can be used as an alternative protein source in plant-based diets, and as a base for processed products, such as soymilk. Soybean meal is used as livestock feed. In addition, soybean oil is the leading raw material used in the production of biodiesel in Brazil.
