A letter from potato farmers to Dr (Mrs) María del Carmen Ayasta Vallejo, Director of the Ministry of Agriculture, Region: Huánuco

Amaryllis, November 12th, 1999

Dear Mrs Directress:

"We are potato farmers from the sector of Amaryllis. It is for the first time that we communicate with somebody like you who has a position in the Ministry of Agriculture. We take the opportunity to greet you and wish you success with your work."

"Many years ago we heard our grandparents and parents talk about how the Potato Blight keeps attacking our potato fields nonstop and each time with more intensity. We observed how year after year this disease lowers the yield of our crops."

"Behind our house in Merida, is a small plot of land (4m x 5m), which we use as an orchard and we do composting there with natural waste. I want to share with you some experiences I have observed in this little area:"

"I have a four ha farm with mangoes, lemon, avocado and floriculture. With the 'El Nino' rains of '98 the avocado trees became very sick and half dead. They lost their leaves, and then only the trunk was left. When we implemented the Homa Therapy on our farm the trees came back to life. Now they are sprouting and in their second flowering, which already shows it's beginning."

"I have a farm of 13 ha mostly lemon plantation. We have had many problems. But all the diseases and infestations that we had previously in the lemon cultivations have been eliminated without the use of agrochemicals.

"I have three and half hectares, almost all lemon. We have begun with the Homa Therapy on February of this year, 1999. My farm was in a bad shape. I was discouraged working, because everything was so bad. I needed to buy lots of insecticides, but our economic situation was so bad, that we could not do the necessary fumigations. Just at that time the Homa Therapy arrived and we took advantage of this Therapy."
