Pesticides in agriculture
In modern agriculture, pesticides are generally used to protect crops against diseases and pests.
The global trend shows an increasing evolution in the use of pesticides to ensure food security and feed increasingly growing populations.
This increase in the use of pesticides also increases the risks associated with their handling. These risks are greater in Africa where we often deal with rural populations who are poorly informed, trained and aware of the dangers linked to the use of pesticides.
The misuse of pesticides can lead to numerous consequences on Sustainable Production, Farmer Health, Food Safety, and the Environment.

How it works
The next generation of farmers is essential to perpetuate this essential profession for humanity. However, we believe that agriculture as it is practiced today must evolve to become an attractive and lucrative profession so that the younger generation can take an interest in it.
This is why we have given ourselves the mission of developing Ecological Solutions for Sustainable Agriculture in Africa.
Our vision: Respond to current agricultural challenges through useful, relevant innovation adapted to local realities and conditions.
