Tocantins has all the ideal conditions for agriculture and livestock. Half of its territory (13 million hectares) is fertile land, available to producers at competitive prices.
Water is abundant for irrigation. Throughout its length, from north to south, Tocantins is cut by the largest river basin in Brazil formed by the Araguaia and Tocantins rivers.
In addition, the state has flat land, which facilitates mechanization. The seasons are very well defined (rain from September to May and dry from May to August) and the period of sunlight (2,470 hours per year) is higher than the national average, collaborating with good harvests.
For these factors, Tocantins is the largest producer of grains in northern Brazil, especially of soybeans. It also stands out for its fruit plantation and cattle breeding. Today, the new bet is the planting of raw materials for biofuels.
