One of our newest teams, Plantwise Brazil helped establish the country’s first five plant clinics in Mato Grosso in 2013, in collaboration with the local government. Our partner, EMBRAPA, is a key player in the agricultural sector and will be instrumental in opening doors to potential programme partners and sources of funding. There is already interest in expanding the plant clinic network to other areas of Brazil, based on what we’ve learned in Mato Grosso. The long distances and high cost of travel within Brazil make monitoring plant clinic services in the field a challenge.
