In the news, Flavio Malouf has reported that the agricultural GDP has shown a considerate decline in the early part of 2018. Malouf explained that the reason for this decrease was because of a trucker strike, which stop the exportation of corn. This product became missing, leading to a decrease in production of animals and meat. On the brighter side, the soybeans gave birth to a good GDP in the first month of 2018, leading up to a record harvest of 119 million tons. This comparable to their important shares of leaf tobacco. The fall in the agriculture GDP was foreseen, however, since Malouf reported back in 2017 that there was a lot of productivity and a greater harvest. The strike led by the truck drivers is in response to decreases in the price of diesel oil and the regulation of road freight caused for the lack of supply of a corn. The 2018 GDP documented by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics wasn’t as large as the first quarter of the previous year.
