Student visit

CA-studentsNearly 20 Mexican students from the Instituto Tecnol√≥gico Superior de San Miguel el Grande in Oaxaca visited CIMMYT El Bat√°n on 01 December 2009. Hosted by the Global Conservation Agriculture (CA) Program, the students spent half a day at the center learning about CA practices, CIMMYT, and Norman Borlaug. The day included a tour of the germplasm bank and experimental fields. ‚ÄúSeveral of the students were from marginalized communities, and with training, they have the capacity to be CA promoters and technicians in these vital areas,‚ÄĚ said Andrea Chocobar, a member of CIMMYT CA team. Also assisting in the event were V√≠ctor Ch√°vez Tovar, Caritina Dur√°n, Ricardo Romero, and Humberto Gonz√°lez.
