Culiacan, Sinaloa- Enrique Riveros Echevarria, president of the Association of Farmers of the Culiacan River (AARC) (“Asociacion de Agricultores del Rio Culiacan”) presented his first report as head of the Steering Committee 2022-2025, in the presence of authorities from the three levels of government, headed by the mayor Governor Ruben Rocha Moya, members and leaders of growers’ organizations.
“Today more than ever we have to unite, growers, governments, society, and the academy, to seek joint solutions to solve such complex issues, but at the same time as simple as understanding that the most important thing for life after air and water is food, it is considered the basis of life, of humanity, of society, of the economy and everything else. We cannot continue to relegate agriculture and food production to neglect,” said Riveros Echavarría.
He emphasized that the challenge is very great due to the adversities faced by the agricultural industry.
Riveros Echavarria reaffirmed the commitment of the AARC and the Steering Committee 2022-2025, to continue strengthening its members through training workshops, providing services, and efforts to make the activity profitable.
The Culiacan River Farmers Association was founded in 1932 by a group of visionary farmers with the purpose of defending and promoting the interests of the agricultural sector.
It has a membership of more than 1,400 members, whose productive activity is an important agent of development in the state, since the economic revenue of its members generates a significant number of jobs, in addition to being an engine of the regional economy.
Currently, it is constituted as a non-profit civil association and its highest authority body is the General Assembly of Members.
Together with ten other sister agricultural associations operating within the state of Sinaloa, CAADES Sinaloa A.C. is an exemplary growers’ organization structure at the national level.
