From Uruguay 🇺🇾

I’m a: “Farmer with no Farm” as I lease 100% of the land I’m planting in. That’s not uncommon here in Uruguay. Been involved with No-Till since the early beginning as my Father was one of the founders of the National NO-TILL Association (AUSID). So, all my ag experience was inside that ag practice. Farms here in Uruguay have mid-quality soils, with a lot of clay, and a small profile with some struggles to hold water. It rains 1200-1300 mm per year but is poorly distributed. We have no snow in winter so we can double crop a winter crop with a summer crop (for example wheat/soybean. Or barley/corn). The fertility of the soil is low and the terrain is gently rolling. The size of the average farm in my area (southwest) is around 500 hectares.

Date of birth: December 12, 1973, in Montevideo, Uruguay. Lived from 1974 to 2016 in Mercedes, Soriano, Uruguay (southwest) From then until today in Tacuarembó, Uruguay (north) Married Macarena Izmendi Alfaro.
