Our HRNS team and partner Instituto Hondureño del Caf traveled to Western Honduras last week to supervise the implementation of demonstration plots as part of our Climate Resilient Landscapes Project, financed by EUROCLIMA+.

To encourage the implementation of climate-smart agricultural practices and agroforestry systems in the region, more than 600,000 coffee plants, 12,000 fruit trees and 300,000 timber trees will be distributed among 400+ smallholder farmers.

Our team in Honduras has almost finished installing 60 weather stations in different smallholder farms.

Thanks to our partnership with Lavazza and xFarm's digital platform, these stations allow smallholders to have real-time climate information and measure temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, and wind speed among other indicators. 🤳🏽📈

As a result, smallholder families take informed decisions at a farm level and have proper knowledge about what actions need to be taken for better coffee cultivation.

Que buena iniciativa, adelante.

Un buen trabajo, ahora, a capacitar a los caficultores en la interpretación de los datos obtenidos por dichas estaciones, de seguro será de mucho provecho para mejorar la caficultura, un aplauso al trabajo realizado, gracias HRNS

Que buen avance tecnológico, entre más conozcamos el comportamiento de la variabilidad climática, podremos aplicar una caficultura de presición, para lograr mejores resultados en producción, rendimiento y calidad.

Progress being made! Building upon the success and advances in Honduras, these demonstration plots were replicated and established in Palencia, Guatemala back in September 2020.

These plots follow the Initiative for coffee&climate's methodology and 5X1 Diversification System, helping smallholders diversify their agricultural production systems. 5 rows of coffee are grown for every row of the diversified crop. In this case, lime! 🌱🍋
