I'm not saying that Putin isn't gobbling up wealth himself, or that he's not corrupt and authoritarian as fuck, but he's also moved by nationalism. It was inevitable that someone like him would emerge given what russia was going through after the fall of USSR.>>3807
I prefer agriculture, mining and animal husbandry maps, because it explains local life and economy better.
map 1 - Sugar cane potential plantation map.
Green means land current used for pasture, yellow means land currently used for agriculture, brown is mix of both. Apparently the stronger the color the better for sugar cane, kinda confusing map
map 3 - very detailed map of important agroindustry activities
map 4 - sugar cane processing plants. Blue is biodiesel, mostly produced from soy, sunflower and other stuff, red is ethanol and green is new planned plants of ethanol. I'd like to have a map that informed which plant is ready to turn it into sugar ethanol, energy and cattle ration, all that I know is that the plants in northeast are bigger producers of sugar because they export to north Atlantic. This site here has all the nice information in charts and maps about sugar cane production in BR, but it's behind paywall: https://www.novacana.com/
. Also, this map is probably very outdated, Lula was giving a lot of incentives to increase ethanol production, but then biggest drought in BR history happened, and Dilma started to control gas prices in order to control inflation but that made ethanol uncompetitive, and finally oil prices dropped. In the end it was estimated that 1/3 of all ethanol producing facilities went bankrupt.
