Using in-vitroplants is a technology that the government has made available to producers through the Bi-national Convention Panama-Costa Rica, for the development of the border area between the two countries, with technologies such as irrigation systems, fertilization and plant health.
During a field day held at Manuel Rodriguez's farm, located in San Pedro in the township of Baco, technicians from MIDA and IDIAP, took the opportunity to highlight the importance of a fertilization plan, based on soil analysis. This analysis emphasizes on how they should take the samples that later will be sent to the laboratory, considering the topography and the use that has been given to the field, among others.
In this activity, the President of the Association of Plantain Producers of Baru, Juan Torres, said the variety Curare Dwarf is the most viable alternative that producers have to make their production retainable. This is because of the heavy winds that they have been facing in recent years.
