Empowering farmers to become effective managers and decision-makers in growing healthy crops.
In collaboration with Ferrero, SAN integrated IPM and biodiversity friendly practices in Malaysian oil palm plantations, covering a representative selection of small holders, medium and large plantations (3,500 ha).
The pesticide and beneficial insect related activities will result in a modular tool package to adopt advanced IPM and reduce the toxic farming footprint.
In Mexico, SAN is leading a project to support pollinator friendly agricultural practices using flower strips to effectively promote natural pest control and pollinator services. To date, insect diversity has increased more than 50%.
