Agriculture in South America – Chile

I was on a cruise around South America during January, February and March 2013.  I went to Columbia, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and French Guiana. I went to haciendas, estancias, and ranchos where there were Hausas and Gauchos.  Below are some agriculture photos from Chile.
