    Uruguay now is now investing in USA farms; Read Why.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 14, 2018

    The MERCOSUR Member;Uruguay, with a much smaller landmass and population then either Brazil or Argentina has as the largest sector of its Agricultural production, principally producing Rice, Wheat, Corn, Barley, Livestock, Cattle and Fish, therefore contributing to the BLOC’s extensive Export Import Trade. Agrilend views Uruguay is set to experience a period of structurally lower growth in the coming years, as investment into expanding agricultural production and re-export capacity is tempered and foreign capital begins to flow into Argentina as the new Argentine government liberalizes its investment environment... Export revenues have been highly uneven over the past decade as a result of the varying economic performances in the country’s key export markets... Earlier state owned monopolies were open to foreign investments in the oil and telecommunications sector as well... The good news for American Farmers especially in Cattle, Beef, Livestock, Milk, Dairy, and Cheese is that since China is pretty much buying all of the countries agricultural products at a pace far faster than it can produce Uruguay as well as Argentina and Brazil are seeking to invest in American farms to deliver this needed deficit quickly! All i can say is Amercian farmers should be singing moooooooooooooooo! For this is great news! For more information please contact me at robertmorgan@agrilend...

    Call for solutions: Food Solutions Challenge - Solutions that impact Female Smallholder Farmers Worldwide

    The Food Solutions Challenge is a local event series and case competition that challenges today’s brightest minds to find solutions to pressing issues in food and agriculture.

    Inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development target 2.3, which states: “By 2030, [we aim to] double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, particularly women…”, this year’s challenge asks: How might we better enable female smallholder farmers to have access to the resources, agricultural know-how, and markets that will improve their livelihoods?

    Supporting female smallholder farmers leads to numerous positive social impacts. Increased agricultural productivity leads to reduced hunger, increased incomes lead to better health and education for farmer’s families, and educating women is one of the best ways that we can positively impact climate change.

    Application Deadline: April 15, 2020
