The Pro Farmer

Hi,
My name is alexander white.
I am a senior agronomist and I have been working for almost 20 years as
a vegetables grower.                           
 
During my work, I gained a vast knowledge and experience, growing vegetables in a nursery, greenhouse, open field,
and also, in non-soil substrates (hydroponic),        
using chemical pesticides, organic and biologic methods.
 
My aim is to share my knowledge with whomever needs it, like farmers, leaving in developing countries, on one hand, and home, self-sustained growers, on the other hand.
