Training for growing soybean in fields of Pinar del Rio

"Now I can plant soybeans on the farm," said farmer Alfredo Sacre González when concluding the workshop and exhibition on that crop held in the municipality of Los Palacios, under the auspices of the Scientific Technological Base Unit (UCTB) and the Programme for Local Agrarian Innovation (PIAL). Sacre added that "it was necessary one such preparation in the territory where the seeding levels are low, but we have conditions for its production as a source of animal feed." On view of generalizing soy culture production on entities of cooperative and private agricultural sector, UCTB specialists gave lectures and presented research results on the main features and devastating diseases of the plantations.
