On September 18, our annual Training Program for 2020-2021 farming season started, and it was entitled: Good Agricultural Practices presented by Chemical Eng. Carlos Adonay Gastélum Barreras.

In this course, participants were able to learn about the basic aspects that must be taken care of or monitor their compliance while working in production units, in order to minimize pollution risks towards farming products.

The subjects addressed in the course were as follows:

– Land history.

-Water management.

-Warehouses.

-Agrochemicals.

-Sanitation facilities.

-Animal management.

-Personnel hygiene.
