CATIE has two enhancement programs focused on preserving, characterizing, documenting, increasing species productivity and increasing resistance to diseases in order to put the genetic diversity of species in current and potential use that are conserved in the germplasm banks available to users.
High level consultancies and services
At CATIE we can firmly say that we offer high level consultancies and services.
Proof of this are our laboratories such as the Soil, Plant Tissue and Water Testing Laboratory or even the Services Management and Provision Unit (UGO) of the Directorate for Outreach and Development (DPD), which attends to demands from the public and private sectors through competitive procurement processes. Another project that confirms our professional quality and contribution to society is our work on the genetic improvement of both coffee and cocoa. This is the place where you can learn all about our activities.
