MCA-Honduras Representatives Visit  Zamorano


Zamorano.- As part of the periodic evaluations that MCA-Honduras performs to every project currently being funded through the Grant Fund, on March 17th, 2008, Wilmer Sánchez, MCA-Honduras Grant Officer, visited the Biological Control Laboratory at Zamorano.

The Biological Control Project has successfully completed its commitment detailing the progress obtained to date, such as the procurement of goods that includes the greenhouses and the corresponding support documentation, as well as the shipping tests for the goods expected to arrive in May.  In equal form, the project coordinators have already developed the procurement processes to acquire the rest of the equipment needed to install the laboratory and the greenhouses in order to initiate reproduction of the natural enemies.
