Project

Responsible use of agrochemicals in Brazil

Introduction

Brazilian coffee farmers use agrochemicals in a variable way, from 1-2 times to even 10-12 applications a year (excessive use ) depending on the region, year/season, climate and technology. Agrochemicals control pest and diseases and allow growers to reach high productivity, profitability and stability of production.

The Project

  • Digital Coffee Farmer Training for 7000 farmers (including use of Personal Protective Equipment, good agricultural practices and sustainability)
  • Training in Agrochemical Application for 1000 farmers
  • 200 technicians from project partners and agrochemical companies trained on sustainability
  • Good access to finance for growers of all sizes with specific lines of credit for smaller coffee growers
