The Eleven Rivers Growers Program is introduced to Students of the Bioengineering Degree at the Tecnologico de Monterrey.

Last April 25, within the context of the “Panel of Experts” held at the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Park, our CEO, Mr. Georgius Gotsis Fontes, shared his experience in agriculture with students of the Bioengineering Degree at the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, Campus Sinaloa.

The purpose of this event was for experts to get the oportunity to share with students the professional experiences they have had, which may help them visualize the position where they could be working, the areas of opportunity the agricultural industry has, where they may start working as soon as they graduate from their degree.

In his participation, Mr. Gotsis shared with students the different uses of biotechnology in crops; one of the examples he shares was integrated pest management, which refers to biological control through beneficial insects that reduce pests with no damages for the crop.

He also talked about the opportunity the biofertilizer industry has, since these are not currently being produced in Mexico, and are mostly imported from Spain and Holland.

He also commented that there are success stories in Sinaloa these days, such as the production of earthworm humus, which is being distributed across Mexico.

Biotechnology is one of the most transcendent and significant  disciplines of science that exist, as it is based on the application of technology in processes that use biological systems and living organisms to innovate in a wide range of industries, such as pharmaceuticals, environmental, food, health, energy, among others.
