In August 1939, the Escola Superior de Agricultura e Veterinária de Minas Gerais (College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine of Minas Gerais), now the Universidade Federal de Viçosa (Federal University of Viçosa), published the first issue of Ceres. The name was extended to Revista Ceres from September/October 1944. Its first board of directors was formed by the eminent Professors Nello de Moura Rangel, Geraldo Gonçalves Carneiro, Octavio Drummond, Edgard de Vasconcelos Barros and Arlindo de Paula Gonçalves. Today, after more than 70 years of existence, it is one of the oldest agricultural journals in Brazil.
