National Newspaper Features UAC-CP’s Work in Organic Production


The College received special mention in an article published in La Razón–a leading national newspaper in Bolivia.

While the focus of the article was on Catholic University of Bolivia’s (UCB) work to develop an all-organic fungicide to combat a common fungus that attacks coffee crops in Yungas, the article also gave specific mention to the UAC-CP’s coffee plantation and successful work to control the fungus that area farmers work diligently to eliminate. (The UCB provides academic accreditation to the UAC-CP.)

The UAC-CP’s focus on research was provided as one of the reasons the College has been successful. “Here, all students are able to incorporate their knowledge into production activities; they are able to link the theory with the practical [learning],” said UAC-CP president Fr. Freddy del Villar.
