Project

Terracal’s portfolio includes agricultural lands in the states of Piauí, Bahia, Maranhão, Minas Gerais and Tocantins, with a development pipeline of large agro-industrial projects in various stages of development.

Terracal seeks to optimize the project structuring and development process across its portfolio, leveraging synergies along the production chain, adopting efficient technologies and operating practices, as well as diversifying its sources of revenue. We make extensive use of Pre-Operational Programs (POP) for every project, which provide proof of concept as well as operational and crop variety testing.

Currently, Terracal's most advanced project is the Piauí Agro-Industrial Complex in northeast Brazil, an irrigated project to produce sugar, ethanol, tomato paste, and bioenergy.
