With the conference "Scientific Experiences Applying Homa Ecological Agricultural Technology in the Great North of Chile" and the poster "Elaboration of the Methodology and use of the fertilizer & bio stimulant Gloria Biosol Homa as an agroecological and economic alternative for Organic Agriculture", the Fivefold Path Foundation Quintuple participated on October 17th and 18th, 2019 First Chilean Agroecology Congress held in Pucón, Chile. The Congress motto was “Agroecology: transcending practices towards food sustainability”, was organized by the Universidad de La Frontera and the Latin American Scientific Society of Agroecology SOCLA and brought together more than 800 people interested in a more friendly and deferential with environment agricultural practices.
The event was also sponsored by important institutions, such as the INIA Agricultural Research Institute, several Universities: Concepción, Andrés Bello, Católica of Temuco, Austral of Chile, Aysén, Los Lagos, the Ecology Society of Chile and the Chilean Society of Socioecology and Ethnoecology, among others.
Both, Homa Organic Farming Conference and the presentation on Homa Biosol were selected by a scientific committee to be presented during the Congress, generating great interest among the attendees.
The conference on "Scientific Experiences Applying Homa Ecological Agricultural Technology in the Great North of Chile" was presented by agronomist Carolina Morales, volunteer and in charge Fivefold Path Foundation Agriculture Commission. During her lecture, Carolina explained what Homa organic farming consists of and presented the results of two scientific investigations carried out in Northern Chile, the first with melons and the second with lettuces.
The first investigation concluded that "the harvest of melon crop in the Pampa del Tamarugal grown with Homa Technology delivered a yield totally superior to that obtained with conventional technology and with valuable commercial qualities.
The 2nd study related to lettuce, "concludes that Homa organic farming technology and its biofertilizer is a clean and sustainable alternative production , in terms of crop and its quality."
On the other hand, the work on "Methodology of Elaboration and Use of the fertilizer and biostimulant Gloria Biosol Homa as an agroecological and economic alternative for Organic Agriculture" was prepared by Juan José Rodrigues, volunteer of the Quintuple Sendero Foundation, Hector Rosas, president of this institution, and Karina Ohme, vice president.
