Latin America

News from the Latin American Regional Group

By José Alexandre Loyola, Director of AgGateway Latin American Steering Committee

Here are a few updates from AgGateway’s Latin America Region. First, we welcome two new associate members to AgGateway that are active in Latin America:

• SiDi

• ANDAV (National Association of Agricultural Resellers)

Second, we held our first 2020 face-to-face meeting this week at SiDi in Campinas/SP. At the meeting we elected Warsis Slywitch (Tecgraf) as chair of our Latin America Steering Committee. We also welcomed Paulo Vianna (Strider) to the Steering Committee. We hold these face-to-face meetings every two months in Latin America to discuss topics of general interest, AgGateway news and updates, etc.

As for outreach, on March 11-12, I will be visiting San Nicolas, Argentina, to attend Expoagro, one of the most important agricultural fairs in Argentina. I’ll be making contacts and participating in meetings with exhibiting companies involved in agricultural machinery, precision agriculture and crop protection.
