The news website G1 ( www.g1.com.br ) has recently reported that producers' profits have increased due to the corn-based ethanol production produced in the United States. This has caused corn prices to rise in the international market, encouraging  Brazilian farmers to shift their soybean fields to corn production.

These factors show that soya-bean products (The Brits say "soya" and the Yanks say "soy".  Who is your audience?) are losing ground while corn is becoming a more profit-making product, and because of its limited supply, soya-bean (Same problem as noted before.) prices have gone up.


What if the same scenerio outlined here happened to our beans and rice or to another important domestic commodity?  Our project will address how this profitable domestic maket can be affected by these biofuels and its importance in the global  market, and it will substantiate a probable priorization of these domestic products by their producers.

 

 

Your vocabulary is superb!  You made some typographical errors that I've corrected.  Each writer has his preference for certain words and phrases, and I've put in mine.  It's not a matter of right or wrong, just preference.  I also made a few changes to the punctuation.  Good luck!
