Personal Summary

My name is Ricardo Trevisol. I am Brazilian, born on February 06th 1991 in Guaraciaba. It is a small country town in the state of Santa Catarina. I am currently working in food service company. I am extremely passionate about big machines in agriculture. I have always enjoyed farm work, principally when involving machines. Since I was young I already knew what I wanted to do in life; to have knowledge in Agriculture, the area that fascinated me at first sight. For me, no other area of study interested me if it wasn’t related to my course. I’m extremely curious to know anything relating to crop production, and I’m always trying to improve my knowledge, researching information related to the subject.

I have hands on experience in corn, soybean cattle, swine and orange. Growing up, my family had always been around the field. Because of this I have always had contact with these areas. To this day my uncle owns a dairy cow, and since I was little, I would always help him with this kind of work. In the same property, we had raised swine extensively. For big scale commercial sale.  Finally, my family’s property is 50 hectares, or about 124 acres, and we try to actively utilize as much of the area as possible with diverse activities. 

The area that I’m most interested in to study abroad is in crop production. I have a some of practical experience when I was in USA I had the opportunity to work with big machines, during a crop season. Starting with tilling in JD450/Landoll 7430, passed the soil preparation started the seeding i worked with t9.390/jd 1770. After seeding I started to move around the fields between States Illinois - Indiana doing application   Ammonia with Case 290 finished this job I started to mower grass around the same fields with the same tractor using a bush hog triple blades. Finished this job i started to load the semi with crops of last season and to prepared the harvest machines. In Harvest I helped with t9/cart and sometimes in combine CR6090.

I studied English at the top way school, and improved when I was out. I have good comprehension in both writing and listening. Maybe in the first month, I will encounter a bit of a challenge. It will be necessary for my coworkers to have a little patience with me, but I will adapt very quickly.
