cocoa

"Five months ago, through the Special Project of Alto Huallaga of Tingo María, I had the opportunity to come to know and to begin to work with a type of Organic Agriculture called, Homa Therapy. I have over 10 ha of Cocoa plantation, which I had to abandon, because the plants refused to produce."

Black Sigatoka Project in Panama

In January, 1997, Roger Subotnik and I traveled to Panama to introduce Homa Therapy as a means to combat the plant disease Black Sigatoka. This leaf fungus attacks banana and plantain crops, and has killed thousands of acres of plantain trees in Venezuela and Colombia. Stronger and stronger fungicides have been used to fight the disease, and some success has been achieved for a while. But eventually a point is reached when the only chemicals capable of killing the fungus are also deadly to man. Hundreds of farmers in South America have abandoned their farms due to the devastation caused by this disease.
