In conversation with Mr. José Antonio Andreu, HZPC grower in Argentina

I come from a small farming family that started as bell pepper growers in a rented 2 hectare farm where we worked the land alongside our parents, my 6 sisters, 3 brothers and I.

We had to work really very, very hard and working prevailed over anything else. Today, Mr Andreu’s operation cultivates 800 hectares of potatoes, of which 75% is grown under pressurized irrigation systems.
