The training of producers to guarantee higher agricultural yields is part of the work objectives of the Cuban Association of Agricultural and Forestry Technicians, ACTAF, said Bartolo Menocal Díaz, its president in the Avilanian municipality of Morón.
ACTAF, considered the scientific-technical arm of the Ministry of Agriculture, has its sphere of action in the different production centers, especially in training on the use of pesticides and fertilizers when the Cold Campaign is already being prepared.
The use of biological means, such as biopesticides and biofertilizers, due to their good positive results, and due to their relevance for the protection of crops and the preservation of the environment, are some of the tasks undertaken by its members.
Training, as the essence of the organization, is carried out through seminars and talks, where new producers enter into agricultural activities, Menocal said.
