Technical Tours for the Tropical Agribusiness Sector
Brazil - Africa | 2020
The Brazilian Cerrado is agro-climatically similar to many parts of the African Savanna. Delegates will therefore have the opportunity to see how similar land and climatic conditions can perform outstandingly in combination with modern technologies and integrated production techniques.
We take into consideration each delegate’s specific area of interest, but offer a diversity of agro-production case studies including:
• CAMPO Research & Testing Laboratory
• Integrated Forestry, Crops & Livestock (IFCL) Systems
• Integrated Crops & Livestock (ICL) Systems
• Syntropic & Regenerative Farming Systems
• Co-Operative Handling
• Value Addition - Milk, Cheese, Fruit & Vegetable Varieties
• And more
All delegates are required to arrive in Brasilia on a specified Saturday in April or May. The itinerary runs for 8 days and 7 nights and will therefore end on the evening of the following Friday.
The African continent has the potential be one of the world's food-producing powerhouses. But Africa’s agriculture has characteristically lagged behind other sectors with domestic food production increasing at an average of just 2.7% a year, barely keeping pace with population growth rates and resulting in the continent being a net food importer with an estimated value of US $ 35 billion per year.
40 years ago, Brazil faced similar challenges and imported 30% of its food. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of Government and Research combined with strategic Public and Private Investment, Brazil is now the second largest food exporter in the world, benchmarking a diversity of translatable agri-success stories that straddle the elusive triple bottom line of economic growth, social inclusion and ecological wellbeing.
Specific to the African climatological and geographical context, the technological development in tropical agriculture of the Brazilian “Cerrado” (savanna) Region is crucial. This area has become the country’s largest producer of soybeans, corn, cotton and livestock as well as achieving self-sufficiency in a range of vegetable and fruit crops.
The objective of this technical visit is to witness a diversity of examples across the Cerrado’s agri-sector including livestock, forestry, syntropic and restoration ventures, cooperatives working with small-scale farms as well as broadacre agricultural production, processing and value addition, all of which have been selected according to their replicability across the world’s tropical landscapes.
