The students of URACCAN venue Bluefields Adriana Michell Domínguez Gómez and Emilse Nayeli Gonzales Silva pre-defended their thesis entitled "Prendition of cocoa plants (Theobroma cacao) with three graft techniques: patch, side pick and terminal spike under conditions of the humid tropics of the Wawashang agroforestry center, community of Pueblo Nuevo, in the municipality of Laguna de Perlas of the South Caribbean Coast".

This academic activity, with which they aspire to graduate in Agroforestry Engineering, is part of the academic processes that URACCAN promotes from its classrooms so that its students contribute, through their research and projects, to the development and autonomy of the peoples of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua.  

The young women were evaluated by a professional jury, consisting of: teacher Neydi Gutiérrez Sosa, Coordinator of Research and Post Degree, of the Bluefields campus; teacher Xiomara Treminio, coordinator of the Institute of Natural Resources, Environment and Sustainable Development (IREMADES); and Mr. Juan Lacayo. It was also attended by Ing. Juan Mendoza, coordinator of the area of Science, Technology and Environment.
