Student visit

December 9, 2009

CA-studentsNearly 20 Mexican students from the Instituto Tecnológico Superior de San Miguel el Grande in Oaxaca visited CIMMYT El Batán on 01 December 2009. Hosted by the Global Conservation Agriculture (CA) Program, the students spent half a day at the center learning about CA practices, CIMMYT, and Norman Borlaug. The day included a tour of the germplasm bank and experimental fields. “Several of the students were from marginalized communities, and with training, they have the capacity to be CA promoters and technicians in these vital areas,” said Andrea Chocobar, a member of CIMMYT CA team. Also assisting in the event were Víctor Chávez Tovar, Caritina Durán, Ricardo Romero, and Humberto González.
