Brazil: Food production index (2004-2006 = 100): For that indicator, FAO provides data for Brazil from 1961 to 2016. The average value for Brazil during that period was 61.4 index points with a minumum of 15.7 index points in 1961 and a maximum of 140.6 index points in 2015. See the global rankings for that indicator or use the country comparator to compare trends over time.
Definition: Food production index covers food crops that are considered edible and that contain nutrients. Coffee and tea are excluded because, although edible, they have no nutritive value.
