  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BR2023-0024

Dr. Jose Dubeux from the University of Florida gave a series of presentations in Brazil on the Fertilize 4 Life (F4L) Initiative at the end of September. The State Department's U.S. Speaker's Program sponsored his visit. His message was that the world needs to produce more food using fewer resources and reducing environmental problems. Dr. Dubeux pointed out that Brazil and the United States are major global producers with a long history of collaboration in agricultural research. He emphasized that the United States and Brazil need to supercharge this relationship to meet the challenges of global food insecurity and climate change and that the F4L Initiative is an ideal first step.
