The birth of a tradition

 The department of Marcos Juárez  is the general representative of the whole area of Córdoba which is characterized by its fertility and agricultural performance.  The National Festival of Direct Sowing was born in 2000.  It was an initiative that  emerged when the Argentine Congress declared the National Capital of Direct Sowing to the towns of Monte Buey and Inriville.  Thus, the department of Marcos Juárez was designated as a pioneer of the initiative that would become a tradition. In addition, the  city  of Monte Buey would be responsible for the annual organization of the celebration.

What is celebrated?

 The celebration is focused on honoring the method of direct planting.  This is an  avant-garde innovation in the world of agriculture that was born as a result  of the studies of a group  of agricultural producers. It was in  the late 1970s that this sector began to worry about the  wear and tear that occurred in the soil and the erosion of nutrients in the earth. Thus, with  the need for a change  and review of procedures, they began to plant crops directly on the stubble of the previous harvest. This innovation was  called “direct seeding”  and  consisted of a radical change  in agricultural processes, resulting in positive changes.

Celebration of the camp

 This holiday is of a national character  because the methodology  of direct planting spread throughout the country.  eacute; ndose in  an advance of the sector.  This is how this party was organized, consisting of  three days full of activities related to training and leisure.  There are three whole days in which there are activities to do, during the day and at night.
