Agronomist is a plant scientist, who has an indirect influence on our lives through clothes, food and sometimes even cars, e.g. biodiesel. Agronomists are experts in agriculture and work with a variety of plants. They work on developing methods that improve the use of soil and increase the production of food. Furthermore, they may also develop new breeds. Agronomist’s field of activities lies among plants, soil and environment. Their responsibilities include water management, preserving biodiversity around the farming area, advising farmers and many more.
Agronomists may vary in their approach to seeds, breeding and fertilizing. For example, agronomists committed to organic farming avoid use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, genetic engineering etc. Instead they prefer animal power, crop rotation, traditional breeding methods, natural methods for controlling pests and other approaches that maintain sustainable development.
Organic farming is one of the fast growing sectors in well-developed countries. Moreover, the trend shows that demand for organic products will not decline.
Agronomists, who work for Natural Habitats are well-educated, experienced and fully committed to natural ways of farming. Therefor, they motivate and support farmers to practice sustainable agriculture, which helps to improve nitrogen cycling, soil carbon storage and health, and pest and weed management. Efficient management of all these factors produces optimal yields with minimal environmental impact.
In our video, we would love to share with you an interview with our agronomist – Gabriel. Gabriel is a professional, who relies on organic principles of farming and performs a vast amount of operations. His supervisor is Jose Antonio – general production manager in Esmeraldas, whose experience includes more then 25 years as agronomist, who planted thousands of palm trees all over Ecuador. In the video, you will find out what kind of advisory we provide to our farmers, how Gabriel sees organic farming and which natural methods of pest management we use.
