The fair was also covered by the local media, the coordinator of the project, Adela Sanchez shared valuable insights on agroecological strategies for sustainable weed management during her appearance on “Hoy por Hoy” Baixo Miño radio show. During the session, she talked about how AGROSUS promotes agroecological farming: “Agroecology is a production system that facilitates the transition from conventional agriculture with chemicals to a more organic approach. This transition not only prioritizes environmental sustainability but also emphasizes community inclusion, both ecologically and socially, by creating an agroecosystem. The European Union has recognized agroecological farming as a priority, in alignment with the principles of the green revolution”.
