Cotecna Brazil audits soybean crops for CESB Awards

Press Release 
Brazil, 10 April, 2012

The CESB (Strategic Committee Brazil Soybean) is a non profit organization created by professionals of several sectors who joined forces to focus on strategies for the Brazilian national soybean culture. Its objectives are to increase the soybean productivity and promote the latest production technologies throughout the country.

In 2010, CESB launched a challenge called ‘Desafio Nacional de Máxima Produtividade’ (national challenge for maximum productivity). The main principles of this challenge are durability and innovation. Cotecna was nominated as the official auditor for all soybean productivity of more than 5.400 kgs per hectare to ensure the respect of rules of the challenge. This Challenge is now in its 3rd year.

The project consists of defining a specific area of maximum 10 hectares and planting any variety of soybean using any approved treatment considered necessary. At the harvest period, the farmers then report their estimated productivity back to the CESB. Cotecna’s audits include the harvests and ensure that rules have been respected.
