As part of our agronomic practices, the rotation of the cultivations of rice and sugar cane is done in cycles of 5 years of sugar cane and 2 years of rice in certain areas of the farms. This results in an environmentally friendly practice for soil usage and is also a new economic activity, aligned with our strategic plan of developing new products.
