AGROBIOTOS is an organic agricultural production company and has launched its training platform in order to provide the necessary skills to people wishing to develop an organic agricultural activity.

An initiative of AGROBIOTOS

Overview of the project

AGROBIOTOS is a platform for training, coaching, support and monitoring of organic farms in order to create a strong resilience worldwide to reduce the current practices that threaten our planet. For can its known the techniques, skills and favorite means of organic production.
It should be noted that many people who want to invest or are launched into agricultural entrepreneurship without the right skills or information to carry out their project successfully, after much investigation become discouraged and give up. This characterizes the abandonment of the agricultural sector to the minority profile.
To this end, we offer to those people who, due to concerns, are unable to attend a face-to-face training course to benefit from our offers on the platform by registering, choosing their speciality, paying for the training and having full access to the training. At the end we can accompany them to the installation, give advice, follow up on the farm, facilitate sales, professional insertion and supervision of their staff.
