Agriculture in Argentina can be better understood with numbers. According to the report of the Agricultural Foundation for the Development of Argentina (FADA) published in September 2019, agri-food chains contribute 22% of national private employment, that is, two out of every ten private jobs.

Likewise, they generate one out of every ten pesos in the country (9.92% of Argentine GDP) and constitute 10.6% of the direct collection taxes of the AFIP. On the other hand, they make up 59% of national exports of goods, which is equivalent to six out of every ten dollars that enter the local economy.

The importance of this sector is so great that in 2015 the UN brought together 193 world leaders who committed to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the following 15 years: eradicate poverty and hunger, combat climate change and protect natural resources. Food and agriculture are at the heart of the 2030 Agenda as it is the world's largest employer and provides livelihoods for 40% of the world's population today.

Infobae Talks is a space where different topics are analyzed together with great specialists and in the next edition agribusiness in Latin America will be addressed as the engine of development and job creation in the region. Next Thursday, September 29 at 3:00 p.m. on Infobae's home and social networks, the journalist Agostina Scioli will talk with representatives of the companies Axion Energy, Bayer, Los Grobo and Syngenta.

The agronomist Emanuel Bodega Duckwitz, commercial and production manager of Los Grobo Agropecuaria, will show how the company focuses on new businesses with various production modalities, with technology as the center of its strategy. Through the production, grain storage and distribution of fertilizers, agrochemicals and seeds throughout its 260,000 ha in Argentina, the company also leads the development of specialty businesses from production to export.

Investing in smallholder farmers increases food security, as well as food production for local and global markets. Better use of agricultural biodiversity can contribute to more nutritious diets, improve livelihoods in farming communities, and help make farming systems more resilient and sustainable.

Daniel Aguzín, commercial leader of Bayer CropSicence for Argentina and Uruguay, will participate in "Infobae Talks Campo" to address the issue of sustainable agriculture. He will expose the innovations that the company is carrying out to guarantee sustainability. He will also elaborate on the Bayer Carbon initiative and how Bayer Forward Farming in Argentina developed.

In most industries and especially in agriculture, the use of machinery is vital, and to be able to sustain them, a good fuel is necessary. For this reason, Juan Pablo Juliano, executive sales manager of Axion Agro, a company specializing in fuels and lubricants, will participate in “Infobae Talks Campo”. Among other topics related to innovation and sustainability, Juliano will explain the characteristics of ultra low sulfur diesel, a product especially suitable for the agricultural sector.

This activity includes the various human actions that transform the natural environment and, in that context, the sustainability of the soil is preserved by regenerative agriculture. It refers to a food production system that nourishes and restores the health of the soil, biodiversity, climate and water; while improving the productivity and prosperity of farmers.

Its guiding principles are minimal soil disturbance, permanent soil cover, spatial and temporal crop diversification, precise application of chemical and biological inputs, and integrated livestock farming. This concept will be developed by Marcos Bradley, Marketing Director of Syngenta South Latin America, who will also talk about the Multifunctional Landscapes and Carbon NET programs for producers developed by the company, in addition to the opportunities offered to farmers with the Cropwise platform.

In this way, in the next “Infobae Talks Campo” the future of agriculture will be discussed. An intelligent agriculture that will increase the use of autonomous machinery, drones for precise tasks, digital and satellite technological support, augmented reality, genetic engineering, phytosanitary products and adjuvants, among other elements that will demand a paradigm shift.
