Soy Frontier at Middle Age - 1 How Brazil's Pioneers Rode the Soybean Boom 5/15 4:49PM
Optimists nicknamed Brazil's frontier "Soylandia" at the turn of the millenium, describing a country that would suddenly triple its soybean production in the next 15 years and rival the U.S. as world's largest soy producer and exporter.

DTN's Marcia Zarley Taylor and Alastair Stewart reexamine the boom years and what's ahead for Brazil's soybean growth as the frontier marks middle age.
