More than counting numbers, the Census of Agriculture 2017 wants to paint an accurate portrait of rural Brazil. In order to reveal a little more of the diversity, landscapes and culture found in the data collection, the series of reports "Census of Agriculture in the field", produced by the IBGE News Agency, will gather stories, images and information from 10 states of the country.

The series will show what census takers bump into in their work routines with the Census of Agriculture. From the buffaloes of the Marajó Island, in Pará, to the shrimp in Santa Catarina, passing through the soybean crops in Maranhão and the organic planting in the Rio de Janeiro’s Hill Range, the Census of Agriculture shows that Brazil has places with economic, climatic and cultural peculiarities.

The Census of Agriculture is just one, but the country's big proportions bring along a number of different realities. More than 5 million properties to be surveyed by the IBGE up to February 2018 – a number which alone is bigger than our neighbor's Uruguay population (3.4 million persons), for example.

As a whole, the series of reports will tell stories and depict the landscapes of Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Minas Gerais, Pará, Paraná, Pernambuco, Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina. In all of them, reporters of the IBGE News Agency have walked a little in the shoes the local enumerators of the Census of Agriculture and talked to those who participated directly or indirectly in the survey, from the census taker to the rural farmer.
