Hi,
My name is alexander white.

I am an agronomist and I have been working for almost 20 years as:


a vegetable grower,

a phytosanitary officer,

a beneficial insect grower,

an agricultural guide in Asia and Africa,

and as a vegetable farm manager.

During my work, I gained a vast knowledge and experience, growing vegetables in nursery, greenhouse, in the field, using pesticides or organic, and also in non-soil substrates (hydroponic).

All that, In few of the biggest seeds and pesticides companies in the world as:

Monsanto, De Ruiter and Biobest.

My aim is to share my knowledge with whomever needs it, like farmers, living in developing countries, on one hand, and home, self-sustained growers, on the other hand.
