The Agronomy Program is wide and diverse due to the amount of topics it must cover:

  • Nutrition and fertilization
  • Soils
  • Sowing, management and harvest practices
  • Seeds
  • Irrigation and drainage
  • Weed control
  • Chemical ripeners and plantation ripening
  • Flowering
  • Burning
  • Climate effects
  • Equipment and mechanics
  • Conservation practices
  • Hormones and other agrochemicals
  • Use of agro-industrial derivatives

This program is selective when choosing its objectives and focal points because the specific problems of each region and locality are diverse, which leads to a prioritization and the development of very specific action plans. In virtue of the importance and transcendence the studied topics have on the agro-industrial patterns of commercial production, and thus on the economy and environment, this program operates as a counterpart to the other existing ones, aiming to integrate the efforts and management to overcome the problems, the optimization and the rationalization of resources, and the maximization of the general benefit.
