FarmSmarter in Paraguay

We have been privileged to visit some amazing smallholders in Paraguay.

With support from the DIT and British Embassy in Asuncion and the Paraguay Ministry of Agriculture, FarmSmarter is poised to expand our research to include Paraguayan crops and farming practices in the smallholder farming community.

Our Founder, Paul Coker was welcomed by the local farming association ‘Association curupicayty’ and Local Fabia of CONAMURI. He visited farms demonstrating a wide range of techniques and traditions in horticulture.
