According to Idelfonso Clero Hernández, owner of the farm and associate of the Cooperativa de Creditos y Servicios Rescate de Sanguilí, with the use of humus and earthworm leachate as organic fertilizers, inputs of chemical origin are replaced while contributing to maintain both human and environmental health.
The agronomist also adds that in the case of leachate, its fungicidal properties are used, which has provided excellent results on their land in the recovery of guava, banana, coffee and melon plantations, among others, an added value given the economic situation that crosses the country, in which the use of natural products becomes a necessity and at the same time a strength.
