Small and medium family farming under analysis - July 23


The sixth conference of Agronomic, Food and Zootechnical Engineering, the College of Agricultural Engineering - North welcomes Agostinho Carvalho who will speak to us about the development of small and medium family farming.

What measures can be taken, immediately and in the long term, to safeguard small and medium-sized agriculture, family farming, and with it the rural world, local production, food security and sovereignty?

Is small and medium-sized agriculture essentially a political and ideological issue?

These conferences focus mainly on the role of agriculture and livestock in the current context of the country and the European Union and also on supply chains.
