The five-night tour will also include trips to iconic landmarks and dining experiences

[LEXINGTON, Ky.] – Thoughts of Brazil typically conjure up images of sunbathers and Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. However, Brazil’s varied landscape is also home to an extensive number of crops, ranging from corn and soy to coffee, cashew and fruits native to the country, like jabuticabas. Alltech Crop Science is offering one lucky farmer and a guest the chance to escape the winter blues and experience the best of Brazil with The Grain Escape.

The crop tour, which will take place in March 2019, will not only include visits to growers for an agronomic exchange of ideas, but also visits to some of Brazil’s most notable landmarks as well as gastronomic experiences typical of Brazilian culture.

“Brazil has a long-standing agronomic tradition,” said Dr. Steve Borst, Alltech Crop Science general manager, “and we’re excited to be able to share a piece of that tradition.”

The contest runs through Dec. 9, 2018 and the winners will be announced on Jan. 4, 2019. The contest is open to all U.S. farmers with at least 10 acres of land who are at least 18 years of age.
