June 22 - Embrapa

My final meeting was with Fellow Antonio Purcino of Embrapa. Having already had an overview of the extensive reach of the work Embrapa is doing in Brazil and globally, we spent time talking about:
  • the global agenda of sustainability
  • importance of agribusiness research for Brazil as a society
  • the change of the role of a agribusiness research center to focus on many areas
  • the continued struggle of the small family farm to keep up technologically and economically
  • global demands for research and innovation

It was a wonderful way to wrap up my travels!
