  • Brazil: Agro100 inaugurates its Technology Center in Londrina and reinforces  

    2020-01-16

    In the last years agricultural productivity in Brazil has grown dramatically, thanks to new technologies and the constant pursuit of innovations, this increase in technology has brought great challenges such as the increase of pests and diseases, the introduction of varieties with shorter cycles to hold 2 to 3 crops per year, weed resistance, new pests and diseases. All this increased productivity has also led to a incredible increase in costs. Studies show that while productivity in recent years has grown by 30%, the cost of production has increased by 170%.

Since Agro100 has set its focus on the new generation in the field, it is confident of connecting with the future of agribusiness. Replacing a generation of successful farmers that made Brazil one of the main players in the agribusiness sector is the main challenge for the new generation.
