Soya Crops Expansion halts for a while

One of the contributors to the rainforest problems in the Amazon ha ben a rapid expansion on soya farming, causing more deforestation than logging and grazing.

Loss of forest is interrupting the Amazon's ability to water itself by its own transpiration and subsequent cloud formation.
