Through the National Training Program in Plant Nutrition and Soil Fertility Conservation, more than 1,000 growers across the country have been trained promoting a new trend in soil fertility conservation.

In view of this, Aristotles Vaca Pérez, an expert in the agro-industrial sector, assures that the above contributes to the creation of a sustainable agro-food system.

Based on the 2024 Agriculture and Rural Development Sector Programme, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (Sadar) has given 244 courses to optimize the use of agricultural inputs and production costs. It is aimed at producing sustainable, safe, nutritious and affordable food for the population.

“The joint work done for the training of the growers has contributed to the interaction of plant nutritional requirements, bio-chemical processes and micro-organisms and this produces an impact on one of the most important resources of the agricultural process, which is the soil. ,” said Vaca Perez.

From crop rotation to reduced tillage, trainers teach practices that are highly beneficial in the context of climate change, helping crops survive high temperatures, water scarcity and rainfall that is erratic and excessive.

In addition to its contribution to the environment, said Vaca Pérez, sustainable agriculture promotes an adequate supply of food and increases current and future soil resources. “In other words, the adoption of new practices progressively increases the level of agri-food production, while strengthening the care of the environment in which the crop is produced,” he explained.

At the same time, various initiatives between the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the National Institute of Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock Research (INIFAP) enabled the training of 1,100 producers in bio-inputs for plant nutrition and conservation of soil fertility Is. ,
