Promote good agricultural practices among local  vegetable growers



Tegucigalpa.- Four Honduran farmers were recently certified in Good Horticultural Practices, a recognition that allows them to sell their products according to the highest quality standards.
The event to award the certificates was sponsored by Hortifruti / Wal-Mart Honduras as part of the Fertile Land Program (Programa Tierra Fertil in Spanish), which is currently being implemented in alliance with MCA-Honduras Farmers Training and Development Activity (FTDA) and with SENASA/SAG specialists.

Fertile Land is a program aimed at providing technical support and at securing fair price markets for the small and medium Central American farmers.

Alliances established by FTDA are addressed to benefit horticultural producers and to train its more than 1,200 beneficiary farmers in good agricultural practices, all in order to prepare both producers and packers to meet the requirements to export  worldwide.


These four Honduran producers are  now certified in order to export to the European market.
