The region between the states of Maranhão, Tocantins, Piauí and Bahia, known as MATOPIBA in Brazil., is considered the showcase of Brazilian agribusiness, with a high productions of soy and corn for export. However, this predatory model has rushed deforestation in the biome’s region, Cerrado, which is one of the most threatened ecoregion in Brazil and extremely important for the supply of aquifers throughout Latin America. The agribusiness expansion puts traditional communities and natural resources at risk.
A Greenpeace Brazil study which has produced the report titled "Segure a Linha" (Hold the Line), shows that this sick model of production does not create a balanced wealth, but the opposite. 
In original language: 
Segure a Linha: expedição 
A região entre os estados do Maranhão, Tocantins, Piauí e Bahia, conhecida como MATOPIBA, é considerada a vitrine do agronegócio brasileiro, com alta produtividade de grãos para exportação, como soja e milho. Entretanto, esse modelo extremamente predatório vem acelerando o desmatamento no Cerrado, um dos biomas mais ameaçados do Brasil e extremamente importante para o abastecimento de aquíferos em toda a América Latina. O movimento de expansão do agronegócio coloca em risco populações tradicionais e a disponibilidade de recursos naturais.
