Strategic input supply programs will be on the agenda at SIAVS

Faced with the adversities faced by the productive sector with the record of historical highs in production costs, sector leaders and representatives of producer organizations will debate, in a round table, strategies to encourage supply. The debate will take place during the International Poultry and Pig Farming Exhibition (SIAVS), which will take place between August 9th and 11th, at Anhembi Parque, in São Paulo (SP).

Coordinated by the former minister and chairman of the Advisory Board of the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), Francisco Turra, the debate will address the programs that are in place today to encourage the expansion of national corn production – an input that accumulates a high of more than 100 % in the last two years.

At the same time, the panel will also address the program that brought together the public sector and leaders of producer organizations in the South of the country to encourage the production of winter cereals.

The general head of Embrapa Trigo, Jorge Lemainski, the president of the Federation of Agriculture of the State of Rio Grande do Sul (FARSUL), Gedeão Silveira Pereira, the executive director of the Federation of Agricultural Cooperatives of the State of Rio Grande do Sul, will participate in the debate. Sul (FECOAGRO), Sérgio Feltraco, and Arene Trevisan, coordinator of the ABPA Corn Work Group.

“Brazil’s poultry and swine farming have faced severe challenges to maintain competitiveness amid rising production costs. In this context, winter cereals have already proved to be an important alternative to corn. The demand for these inputs is heated. Brazil is still an importer of wheat and barley, but we have already launched the challenge of transforming the country into self-sufficient and even an exporter within five years. It is this strategy that will be debated”, Turra assesses.
