WHAT IS AGROHACK?

Agrohack is a premier agriculture innovation summit whose purpose is to propel agriculture as a sustainable source of growth and economic development.

WHY AGROHACK?

The agriculture industry in Puerto Rico has been on decline for 100 years, dropping from 71% of the island’s GDP in 1914 to less than 1% today. More than 80% of the food consumed on the island is imported, when 90% of it could be locally grown.

As a result, billions of dollars that could contribute to Puerto Rico’s economic recovery and to a more stable future are leaving the island to contribute to someone else’s economy.

This downward trend can change direction, but not by itself. We have to do it.

Agrohack will showcase the emerging mindset and ideas that can revive our agriculture ecosystem through innovation. The event will bring together and strengthen a community of thinkers and doers whose shared purpose is moving agriculture forward in the right direction and helping Puerto Rico become an agriculture hub in the Americas.
