Soils are the first land carbon reservoir, and therefore, key allies in the fight against climate change and the reduction of GHG emissions. Agriculture needs soils to produce food and ensure food security, but like any productive activity, it contributes to the emission of GHGs. However, not all forms of agriculture are the same.
What are the benefits of the model of agriculture that we promote?
The model of agriculture and innovation promoted by Aapresid is an ally against climate change. It increases soil carbon sequestration while reduces GHG emissions: CO2 emissions are reduced by 40%, the requirement of synthetic fertilizers is reduced by half and it improves productivity, this means it allows the production of more grains per CO2 unit emitted.
The path of innovation in networks
Aapresid promotes the innovation in networks by exchanging information and experiences at local level; identifying common issues and challenges among farmers; finding solutions to those common problems, that are based on science and experimented in real productive scenarios; developing private-public partnerships; applying and scaling better productive systems that helps to anticipate future scenarios; developing certification standards that ensure environmental, productive and social sustainability.
Join the XXXI AAPRESID Annual Congress from August 9-11, 2023: The most outstanding event in the field of agricultural knowledge and technologies in Argentina and a worldwide reference that gathers every year over 6,000 in person and 15,000 virtual attendees.
This year, the theme of the event will be "C, ELEMENT OF LIFE". Carbon is a vital element for human life. It composes most of what we are, what we use and what we consume. In agriculture, it is a key ally to increase food, fiber and energy production while mitigating climate change and improving the health of our soils. Therefore, this 2023 event will focus on discussing different carbon strategies along the following themes: soil health and climate change, bioeconomy, biotechnology, agroecological systems, integrated systems, crop management, machinery and new technologies, legislation and public policies, and education and communication.
The Congress will have a hybrid format: in person and online.
