Director General of IICA, Manuel Otero, described the challenges that the region must surmount on the path towards Agriculture 4.0 and in its quest for innovation.
The SRI methodology, which reduces the economic cost and environmental impact of rice farming, is contributing to renewing production on farms in Costa Rica and other Latin American countries.
Manuel Otero addressed the Congress of the Argentine No-Till Farmers Association (AAPRESID), where he called for the strengthening of supranational institutions to assist in tackling the devastating effects of climate change. He also urged countries with developed agriculture sectors to provide greater support to Central America and the Caribbean.
The proposal is in response to a request by the country’s Executive Commission for Cow’s Milk (CEBL - Spanish acronym), which is seeking to strengthen the institutional framework and governance of the sector.
