At the signing of this agreement were present the following participants: Roberto Countiño, director of the Agronomic Science Faculty from UNACH, José Guadalupe Araujo, academic secretary and Professors René Pinto, Francisco Guevara and Adalberto Hernández, who will be collaborating with the development of the research thesis.
