Sharing knowledge is a core value at Koppert Biological Systems. Reason enough for the company to support local agricultural consultants or ‘plant doctors’ in Kenya through a training project on Integrated Pest Management. This activity will make Koppert’s enormous store of hands-on knowledge, expertise and skills available to Kenyan small farmers via these plant doctors.
This, in turn, will help the farmers to grow better and safer crops with less dependence on chemical inputs. Not necessarily by using Koppert products but, in the first place, through a better understanding of biological systems and how best to use these for the benefit of the grower and his family.
