Technical Assistance and Rural Extension Program (ATER) for medium rural producers: preliminary notes

(2019) The GPP supported the Secretariat of Family Agriculture and Cooperatives of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA) in the construction of a proposal to leverage the medium Brazilian rural producer through an ATER program, com_cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ focus on increasing Gross Value of Production (GVP) and productivity. Thus, a territorial analysis of this profile of medium producers was carried out and the micro-regions were defined for the beginning of the project. The delimitation of priority micro-regions for the creation of ATER poles for medium-sized producers took into account essential factors for the success of the project:


1) the eligibility of the micro-region (presence of the target audience);

2) the existence of refrigerators;

3) the relative importance of livestock for medium producers;

4) the value of pasture land in medium-sized properties;

5) access to rural credit through Pronamp.
