Soybean, (Glycine max), also called soybean or soybean, an annual legume of the pea family (Fabaceae) and its edible seed.

Soybeans are economically the most important grain in the world, providing plant protein to millions of people, animals and ingredients for hundreds of chemicals.

Yellow corn is a variety of sweet corn. Her ears are encased in lemon-hued husks tightly bound with silks and a tassel that extends from the tip. The yellow beans are packed in tight, nearly uniform rows. A single ear of corn can contain up to 400 kernels.



Sunflower flowers are characterized by having large capitulum-type inflorescences and varying sizes from 7 cm to 30.5 cm diagonally, with a dark floral disc and yellow radial ligules.

Famous for heliotropism (plant movement towards the sun), sunflowers at dawn have their flowers facing east. During the day they follow the sun from east to west, while at night they face east. 



As a cereal grain, it is the most consumed staple food by much of the world's human population, especially in Asia. It is the agricultural commodity with the third largest production in the world, after sugarcane and corn.



Cotton cultivation has been known to mankind for at least 6,000 years. The Incas and other ancient civilizations used the plant to manufacture fabrics. In the territory that would become Brazil, the indigenous already dominated the plantation, being able to weave and dye the threads of their fibers to make hammocks since before the discovery.

Commercial production in the country began in the 18th century, in the states of the Northeast Region. In 1760, Maranhão exported the first sacks of cotton to Europe, starting the planting of the perennial tree type, which has longer fibers.



Wheat (Triticum spp.) is one of the most important staple food crops for humans: it provides about 20% of the energy and protein in food worldwide. It is the most cultivated crop in the world with 225 million ha harvested in 2009. Wheat grain production (682 million t in 2009) ranked third among cereals after maize and rice (FAO, 2011).
