LATAM Report

On The Road in Brazil

By Jose Loyola, Latin America Director

August was a busy month for AgGateway Latin America, with travel and meetings at significant technology events in Brazil.

We participated in the Brazilian Congress of Precision Agriculture (ConBAP) in Campinas/SP August 9-11, and had conversations and meetings with several technology companies and members of AgGateway at our booth. I gave a presentation about AgGateway, and Ronaldo Oliveira (Embrapa Solos and leader of the Soil Laboratory Data Integration project) presented on the scope and status of Working Group 11, focused on producing a regionalized MODUS table and observation code list, to more than 600 participants of the Congress.

On August 17th and 18th in São Paulo/SP we participated in the National Congress, promoted by our associate member ANDAV (National Association of Agricultural and Veterinary Input Distributors). I, together with Flávio Barros representing our member Proagrica, were present to visit the event and promote AgGateway, visiting booths of some companies in the agricultural input industry.

We also hosted a live virtual event on August 22 titled "Prospects and Trends in Precision Irrigation in Brazil." You can view a recording of the proceedings on our YouTube channel.
