Technology in agribusiness has undergone a rapid evolution not only in relation to production, machines, implements and inputs, but mainly in the adherence to systems to improve management and controls, which requires the segment to compete with other sectors. by specialized human capital. This role is extremely important for companies to be assertive in hiring management systems that are more in line with their operational needs and for them to be able to allocate their financial resources in the best way.  

Even in the midst of the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, agribusiness continues to show positive results and support the recovery of the Brazilian economy. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the sector ended 2020 with a record high of 24.31% compared to 2019, according to data from the Confederation of Agriculture and Livestock of Brazil ( CNA ) and the Center for Advanced Studies in Applied Economics ( Cepea ).

With positive growth prospects also for 2021, technology in agribusiness can support the sector in improving agricultural practices, in the daily lives of rural producers and, consequently, in increasing sales.

According to information from the Brazilian Precision Agriculture Commission, 67% of Brazilian crops already employ or use technology at some stage between the production and harvesting of an agricultural product. Faced with the numerous benefits for this market, innovation in the field is increasingly essential for companies.
