to an announcement made this past week by Peru’s Minister of
Agriculture, Adolfo De Cordova, approximately 33,000 farmers currently
practice organic growing methods.
With 273,000 hectares
certified thus far for organic growing nationwide, the Ministry of
Agriculture is also providing technical support to nearly 10,000
This trend supports a previous decision made by some
regional governments to ban genetically modified crops and support
organic growing instead.
Thousands of varieties of foods such
as potatoes have thus been protected along with people's health and the
country’s ancient culture.
A green salute, Minister De
Cordova, all organic growers and Peru for your noble leadership in this
sustainable practice. Wishing similar measures for all governments to
bring the highest benefit of nutritious fruits and vegetables to people
