a comprehensive farm development program
The Farm Future Program
It is a comprehensive approach that brings all the relevant stakeholders together in order to create, by selection and completion, the best breed of farmers possible. Terra Agric has developed the Farm Future Program to build the winning farming team in emerging agricultural countries.
Farm Future Program is a comprehensive farm development program which is based on the following principles:
- Competitive farming. Farming is about income generation, using biological processes like growth and selection in order to produce at the lowest possible cost of production
- Predictable farming. Competitive farming is knowledge-based farming which is able to select, demand, and deliver according to buyers’ expectations.
- Reliable farming. Modern consumers are demanding compliance with “globally accepted good farm practices”, registered and traceable production, and quality assurance which accepts the principle that the creator of any problem with the produce bares the cost of the problem.
- Viable farming. Farmers need to generate sufficient income in order to be able to satisfy their consumption demand as a family and need to grow their income potential with at least the national rate of economic growth, if not higher.
