South American Soy's NF1 Farm, in Tocantins Brazil

 

In June of 2004, the Company purchased its first farm, NF1, a 1,027 hectare (2,538 acre) tract of land in the municipality of Araguacu.  At the time of purchase, the farm contained 97 hectares (240 acres) of pasture, with the balance in virgin cerrado (brush).


 

A permit to clear the farm was granted by the state of Tocantins in September 2006, and clearing and development operations took place in 2007 and 2008, with approximately 50 hectares remaining to be cleared as of January 2010. 

The farm has established pastures of 28.6 hectares (70.7 acres) and in November of 2009, 378 hectares (934 acres) of soy, plus small areas of corn and dryland rice were planted.  When clearing is complete, the farm will contain 425-450 hectares (1,050-1112 acres) of cropland, representing 41-44% of the total farm area. 

This farm is fully paid-off, and a clear title is held to the property in the name of the Limitada.  This farm was purchased at a cost of 867,585 real in June of 2004, and was appraised in January of 2010 for 2,954,700 real, a gain of  241% over purchase price.  Using an exchange rate of 1.75 real-per-USD, the farm had a value in USD of $1,688,400.
