Latin American countries should invest in technology for the agri-food sector in order to face the challenges presented by climate change, according to José Perdomo, President of the regional association CropLife.

"The use of technology is a way to mitigate that impact" and produce more efficiently, according to Perdomo during the "Agrifood Challenges of the 21st Century" forum held in Guadalajara (Jalisco, Mexico).

The panel of experts on Climate Change pointed out that the temperature is expected to increase by 0.2 degrees centigrade per decade over the next two decades if the amount of greenhouse gas emissions does not decrease.
