Agricultural Innovation Marketplace

A partnership to enhance agricultural innovation and development

The participants went to EMBRAPA Cerrados, one of EMBRAPA’s ecorregional units, for a field visit where a project on passion fruit (Passiflora) was presented. The presentation showed the strategies for introduction of new technologies in the production chain. During the visit the participants were able to see passion fruit species cultivated in the unit for research and had the opportunity to visit a tropical nursery from a producer who commercializes seedlings of the Passiflora project. The last place visited was a community-based farm of passion fruit, where participants got in contact with the way associations work and commercialize products. Back to the place where the event is taking place, the groups gathered to discuss themes related to the projects.
