The largest agribusiness fair in the Midwest has been held since 2008, and it meets the growing demand for technology from rural producers. If before large farmers were always interested in innovations in this field, today small and medium farmers are also looking for innovations to improve production. Among the 500 exhibitors at the fair, improvements and advances in agriculture were the dominant themes. AgroBrasília started on Tuesday (5/17) and runs through Saturday (5/21), at Ivaldo Cenci Technological Park, at KM 5, of BR-251, for the Federal District Direct Settlement Program (PAD-DF).

Sandra Vittoriano, President of the Federation of Fruit Growers, Florists and Horticulturalists of the Federal District (Sindfhort), highlighted that the change in behavior in the profile of small and medium producers was driven by the health crisis of the novel coronavirus. “During the pandemic, people have changed their way of thinking a lot. Many older producers have moved away from production and left their children to take over the work due to the coronavirus problems. Young people are more open to technology, they are seeking,” he says.

According to her, the entire production process has changed. “Even the way producers package their goods is different. The youth presence is much stronger in agriculture. They are the new generation. For the government, allowing small producers to implement these technologies, with access to microcredit, for example,” he said. pointing to.

Managing in the face of adversity

Today’s event began at 8:30 am with the commission in the main hall, in the presence of the technical consultant with experience in soil sector construction, Ivo Frare; Professor of the Federal University of Santa Maria and Dr. Jorge Carneiro Amado in Soil Management; and Physician in Soil Sciences and Researcher at Paraná Institute of Rural Development (Iapar), Ademir Calegari.

Ivo emphasized that the method of farming today is not the same as in previous generations. He points out that “a producer needs to understand that management directly affects production. Research indicates, for example, that the way he deals with drought is responsible for 80% of the production he will have that year.”

Management, according to the specialist, refers to the amount of water and air in the soil, soil compaction and organic matter present. “The biological activity that we do in the soil is essential,” he explains. “This also indicates the quality of the products and the nutritional value they will have.”
