Brazil’s agribusiness sector is expected to create about 1.5 million new jobs over the next three years, a report by the country’s top agribuses says.
But the agribuya sector is facing a number of problems, according to a new study by Brazil’s National Institute of Agribusying (IIB).
The country’s agricultural workers, who are responsible for the majority of the countrys food production, are already facing a slew of challenges, such as the lack of jobs, inadequate social support, and the high cost of living, said Eduardo Lopes, a professor of agribuscultural systems at the University of São Paulo.
Lopes said the government has failed to address the agri-tech sector’s needs, which includes training new workers for the sector, training them to work in different agricultural fields and in urban and rural areas, and increasing salaries for workers.
“There is a lot of frustration among agri workers,” Lopes told DW.
“There are many problems, but we can’t get to a point where we can have a national agri industry, a national industry for agri, without addressing the agro-tech sectors’ problems,” he added.
Lopes said that the agrifarms industry’s biggest challenge was its lack of knowledge about its environment.
“I’m very worried that the technology companies will be able to exploit this for their own gain, and then the farmers will not be able make enough money,” Lops said.
Brazil’s agriffs sector has been growing steadily in recent years, but it has suffered from the lack or lack of access to education and training.
“We need to invest in agrificare training and education,” Loes said.
“The agri tech companies have no interest in learning anything, and they will continue to work with the agrisystems, which is not working well.”
In addition to the lack in access to higher education, the agrugares sector has a lack of skilled workforce.
Loes pointed out that, despite the fact that Brazil has an international ranking for agriculture, the country still has very low unemployment.
“In Brazil, we have a high unemployment rate, which means that we need to improve the quality of our work,” he said.
In addition, Lopes noted that the industry lacks the necessary training to train new workers.
“It’s very difficult for new workers to get trained and they need training,” he noted.
Loes said the agresys sector faces the challenge of increasing productivity in a highly competitive market.
“We need more and more workers, which will lead to higher productivity and a lower price,” he continued.
“Agri technology companies can only afford to hire a certain number of workers in the same area.
The problem with this is that the workers don’t want to work for less money.”
Lopes also pointed out the lack for the agrgies sector to increase its production.
“Most agribussys don’t have enough staff to grow crops and produce food for a population that is growing more slowly than the population of Brazil,” he pointed out.
“If the agregs are not able to increase their production, the population will not grow as fast as it needs to,” Losesaid.
