The São Francisco Valley is one of Brazil’s “fruit baskets”, producing most of the country’s grape and mango exports. It historically attracted settlers from all over the world to grow on its land, and for good reason: 300 days of sun a year here allow several harvests per year, making this semi-arid area something of an oasis. However, as is common in many areas in Brazil (and, indeed, across the world), the land is blighted by soil salinization, affecting everyone from small farmers to huge industry players.
