Eda will train 70 farmers of  the “united economy” project”


Ocotepeque.- In order to improve the production and marketing techniques of 70 men and women farmers participating in the “United Economy Project” that is currently being implemented by the Honduran Brotherhood Association, MCA-Honduras will be organizing and training them through the Farmers Training and Development Activity with the assistance of  Raul Murillo, a Honduran Agricultural Engineer.  Both FTDA and United Economy are being financed by MCA-Honduras.

It is expected that as a result of this training, the 70 men and women farmers will adopt good agricultural practices and will  be able to market their products, in order to achieve  the goal of a net income of US$ 2.000.00 per hectare per year by introducing a scheduled planting  procedure for high-value horticultural products.

The training includes basic production techniques; integrated plague and disease management; as well as appropriate use of agrochemicals.  These new knowledge will enable them to increase their performance and to enhance the quality of their products.
