Agricultural research center opens in Guerrero

Adesur promotes the sustainable development of the agrifood industry

World-class science and technology have arrived in the state of Guerrero with the inauguration of Adesur, a consortium designed to promote the sustainable development of the agrifood industry in Guerrero, Chiapas and Oaxaca.

The new facility will be managed by the National Science and Technology Council (Conacyt) and will focus on developing agricultural biotechnology, ecotourism, aquaponics, food sustainability and streamlined production chains of regional products such as coconut, coffee, beans, agave, mango and the regionally produced tilapia.

Located in Acapulco, Adesur houses laboratories, public outreach and field research offices.

Created by Conacyt, Adesur is made up of four institutions that form a network of public research centers.

Guerrero Governor Héctor Astudillo Flores officially opened the facility yesterday, predicting that its efforts would bring great benefits to the southern-Pacific region of the country.
