BOSTON — The president of Brazil is planning to make stops in Boston and Cambridge. Gov. Deval Patrick met President Dilma Rousseff to the State House on Tuesday.

Patrick said the visit is a result of his nine-day trade mission to South America in December that included tours of Chile and Brazil.

In Brazil, Patrick announced an agreement intended to forge closer links between agricultural researchers at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and their Brazilian counterparts.

Later in the day Rousseff is scheduled to make remarks at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics in Cambridge.
