Seedbed of the Future

Regardless of where you are in the world, rural communities play an integral role in society. In Latin America, our Seedbed of the Future (Semillero de Futuro) program is directed at improving struggling rural communities.

Using Monsanto employees throughout the region as its “eyes and ears,” the program works to encourage the development of sustainable projects in order to improve the quality of life of people living and working in rural communities across the region. These include issues such as education, food production, health care, culture promotion and creation of awareness to preserve the environment.

Seedbed of the Future covers the provinces of Buenos Aires, La Pampa, Entre Ríos, Santa Fe, Córdoba, Corrientes, Misiones, Chaco, Santiago del Estero, Tucumán, San Luis, Salta y Jujuy of the Argentine Republic, the departments of the Eastern Region of the Republic of Paraguay, and Uruguay.
