The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA) admitted in a statement that it was already known: the government should extend the period of the Rural Environmental Registry (CAR) for another year, since there are fewer than 100 days to finish, only about 11% of all Brazilian farms were registered.

According to the Brazilian Forest Service, responsible for registering the property in most states, most CARs are in the North: 202 000, covering 52% of the area of private property estimated by the government. In the region, states such as Mato Grosso and Pará have had their own systems and CAR had been doing for years. The 44,000 Mato Grosso entries are being migrated to the database of the federal government (Sychar) and the government of MT decided to close their system and move to perform registrations using Sychar the Ministry of Environment.
The worst performance was in the Northeast: The region registered properties only 9.5 thousand or 8.9% of its total area. In the Southeast were registered 101 000 properties, of which 38 600 are in São Paulo. They correspond to an area of almost 10 million hectares (17% of total). In the Midwest, 89,000 CARs cover 53% of the area of the region. In the South, 66,000 properties have done the register, totaling 1.8 million hectares (4.3%).
