Poccocí: “Right now with irrigation, with the way of working and the UCR investigations that have been carried out, we have hectares that are yielding 200,000-250,000 kilos in one year, while the normal was 80,000 or 100,000 kilos. It’s something incredible and the Pococí hybrid lends itself to that. ” -Víctor Carvajal Campos, General Manager of Coopeparrita Tropical, R.L.
