In May and November of 2011 Plenty representatives met with professors and department heads at the University of El Salvador (UES) School of Agriculture. With encouragement from the UES School of Medicine, in August representatives from the School made their first planting of non-gmo soybeans at an agriculture station near San Salvador.
This past December they harvested the first variety trials from three seed lines we brought to them from Guatemala, and they will be replanting in 2012.
They would like Plenty to conduct workshops for students about the processing of soybeans for small business development. Plenty will continue working with the UES to multiply and distribute non-gmo soybeans and conduct soy food processing education activities in El Salvador.
