Israel Araya is a rice producer in Bagaces, Costa Rica, whose conventional farming practices resulted in unsuccessful harvests, and, consequently, substantial losses. He could never have imagined that a virtual course would open the door to innovation.

In 2018, after 34 years of farming, Israel faced one final setback in production alongside his children Steven and Marlon, whom he had convinced to venture into rice farming in order to enhance their livelihood and identify opportunities for improvement.
