Very nice, Yuri!

I always like to spend a few days in the country side, and this farm shown here seems to be very quaint and good for some resting.

South

Bringing a post from August 2013. From Midwest's summer to South's winter:

I spent this weekend in Londrina and took some pics from the rural area. As it was a very cold Sunday morning (4°C), me and my brother decided to go to the countryside to enjoy the sunny day and see the landscape.

Northern Paraná is one of the world's agriculture powerhouse, so it's nice to have some pics showing this side of Brazil. Let's go to the pics. Soybeans were harvested on March and gave place to the wheat:

Wheat

Virtually a 100% of Brazilian wheat (around 5 million tonnes) is grown in South. Half of it on Paraná, and 1/4 of it, on northern Paraná. July's cold wave (well documented on SSC), brought negative temperatures to northern Paraná and damaged the crops.








Coffee

Northern Paraná used to produce 50% of Brazilian coffee (1/3 of the world) and Londrina was known as the "world's capital of coffee". Then, the 1975 Black Frost destroyed in few hours billions of coffee plants. The production of that year was zero and 2 million people were pushed away from the region. Today, Paraná produces only 4% of Brazilian coffee (which is not that important to Brazilian economy anymore), and the state successfully has shifted to soybeans, corn and wheat.

Even if Brasil is soon to be nr 1 in Agricultural profudts exports, there are almost no images of brasilian farms on SSC...Good job, Yuri!

Yes. Even though the quality of pics are not that great, I decided to open the thread to show that part of Brazil that's completely unknown to foreigners. Brazil is already an agricultural superpower and keeps growing at double-digit rates.

Thanks, Klausenburg!

Southern Brazil is not only "European" in their demographics, but in some of its landscapes as well. It's a subtropical region, full of high plateaus, meaning even snow on winters.

I've posted many countryside pics on "Londrina - Little London" thread on my signature. Much better quality than those ones posted here.
