Semilla Nueva - New Seed

TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE

Given the nature of Semilla Nueva’s work, we have sought out a diverse group of scientific and technical advisors representing important regional and global institutions with expertise in agricultural research, extension methods and sustainable development. Meeting quarterly, the members of our Technical Advisory Committee review the direction of our programs, field results, and help prioritize our efforts.
