The following areas of cooperation were discussed:

  • Embrapa will Introduce and recommend AgGateway to entities and professionals from other countries in the Latin America region which have the same objective as Embrapa. The goal is to solicit association with AgGateway, thus expanding our presence with entities in digital agriculture in other countries in the region.
  • Embrapa will promote and use AgGateway’s logo in institutional events, valuing the fact that they are members of AgGateway in this environment of Digital Agriculture.

AgGateway also launched a new series of “live” webcasts last month on YouTube, featuring a conversation with two Embrapa executives: Stanley Oliveira Head of Digital Agriculture; and Vitor Mondo, Head of Technology Transfer.
