Full Vision: How do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future for your Place and People for 2050?

With the practice of agriculture the goal is to consume and sell. Every day people eat and it is thanks to these sales from agricultural products which brings out the economic side. As for diets it must be done with the consumption of healthy products hence the need to practice a natural or even biological agriculture, which is very beneficial for the environment since there will be more risk of soil and groundwater contamination by chemicals. Thus we will strengthen the culture of different populations who used to use techniques such as fallow. Technology will increase yields and a good policy that is only good management will allow in agriculture if it is under control to have food security
