Activity Report, May - July 2018

Soil remineralization in action, Pinal de Amoles
Soil remineralization in action, Pinal de Amoles

Thanks to the support of GlobalGiving throughout this period, we were able to carry out 106 technical assistance visits—in addition to those previously carried out during the year—serving a total of 150 agricultural and livestock producers. We continue to promote organic production through continuous visits to householders who cultivate a home garden, thereby improving the quality of food and of life of families in the region.

We have begun growing organic tomatoes in Tonatico Pinal de Amoles; our six greenhouses have been sown and await their first, large-scale harvests. We hope to produce more than 1,500 kg of tomatoes, completely free from agrochemicals. With this program, we continue to improve the local economy by generating income for families.

Corn production on 200 hectares of agricultural land is also under development; due to the remineralization of these soils, we expect a higher yield than during the previous year.

With regards to holistic livestock production, pilot ranches in Chihuahua, Sonora, San Luis Potosi, Guanajuato and Queretaro have shown significant improvements since implementing infrastructure planning and rainwater harvesting systems. We plan to begin applying keyline design on more ranches before the start of the rainy season in order to observe more tangible improvements in the vegetation.
