The day had not even dawned and the expectation for the National Opening of soybean harvest, which took place in Jataí (GO), this Thursday, the 23rd, was a lot of partying. The auditorium packed with more than 1,500 people, a historical record for the event, proved the importance and symbolism of the main event for agriculture in the country. Once again the celebration was contagious, especially with the prospect that the country should harvest the largest soybean crop in history and, breaking, become the world’s largest producer of grain, surpassing the United States. The optimism of the participants of the event was so great that the three harvesters were crowded with the leaders of agribusiness in the country, among them: the governor of Goiás, Ronaldo Caiado, the president of the Parliamentary Front of Agriculture (FPA), Alceu Moreira (MDB-RS), the president of Aprosoja Brasil, Bartolomeu Braz, the Secretary of Land Affairs of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nabhan Garcia, and the president of Aprosoja Goiás, Adrian Barozotto. All of them participated in the famous ‘soybean rain’, the event’s trademark.
