An input is understood as the “set of elements that take part in the production of other goods”. In agriculture, they are found in the form of phytosanitary products, substrates, fertilizers and vitamins that are applied to the crop with the aim of nourishing the soil, protecting plantations against pests, preventing and/or treating diseases and improving post-harvest quality.
