Training courses and visits by our customers

ASD has a long history of organizing training courses for its customers on the cultivation of oil palm. These courses have been taught mostly in Costa Rica, but also in several other countries. The last international course for agronomists and agricultural technicians was given in Costa Rica in July 2010, and the next one for 2011 is now in the preparation phase. We remind you that space in these courses is limited and the demand is usually high, so if your company is interested in participating, we recommend you to see our ad on this website.

Our distinguished visitors. As we reported in our previous issue, the legal framework to start the operations of "PT ASD-Bakrie Oil Palm Seed Indonesia" was signed in November 2010. This company will produce seeds of high-yield ASD varieties in Indonesia. In March of this year, we were honored with the visit of high level representatives of the Bakrie Sumatera Plantations company who visited the genetic garden and the facilities for research and the processing of seeds and clones in the town of Coto.
