Chomitz, Kenneth M. ; Thomas, Timothy S.
Land use - Brazil - Amazon River Estuary.; Agricultural productivity - Brazil - Amazon River Estuary.; Deforestation - Brazil - Amazon River Estuary.
Nearly 90 percent of agricultural land in the Brazilian Amazon is used for pasture, or has been cleared and left unused. Pasture on average is used with very low productivity. Analysis based on census tract data shows that agricultural conversion of forested areas in the wetter western Amazon would be even less productive, using current technologies.
