The students, currently pursuing undergraduate and graduate studies at the PUCPR Biotechnology and Agro-biotechnology Research and Education Center (CEIBA, for its acronym in Spanish), had the opportunity to observe firsthand the soy pollination process, as well as benefits and contributions of biotechnology in agriculture, from the field to the table.

“Le damos gracias al Dr. Miguel Pereira por hacer esta visita posible. Además, le damos gracias a Melissa y Jorge de Monsanto por guiarnos por el proceso de la polinización de la soya y por abundar más sobre las prácticas de Monsanto,” posted Dr. Seda on the Association’s Facebook group.
