Brazil exports agricultural technology to developing world

According to China View, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is negotiating with Brazil to transfer its agricultural technology to other developing countries. According to the Brazilian authorities the US and Brazil agreed on a deal to transfer technologies developed by Embrapa -- the Brazilian Agricultural Research Council -- in order to help developing countries increase their output of corn, soy bean and wheat. Under this deal, technical know-how will be transferred to Angola and Mozambique as well as Central America. Brazil will provide technical assistance, training and technology transfer for countries that wish to improve their agricultural productivity.

The report does not mention the terms under which the Brazilian technical know-how is to be exported.
