VERACRUZ DEMO FARM:  Marvin, Ernesto and Victor installed new irrigation systems at the Demo Farm in Veracruz to test how best to use water and maximize yield.  Taking lessons from the 50% crop loss during the drought in 2016, the Pontis team is developing new methods to incorporate into the Pontis Sustainable Agriculture Program.

In addition to training farmers in farm methods that work within dry seasons, the irrigation results obtained during this dry season will also be incorporated into our well, water and irrigation project.  Learn more about this signature 2017 project here:  Well, Water and Irrigation Project
