About Miguel

Miguel Angel studied business administration, followed later by microbiology. This specialization has allowed him to work in biological pest control using microorganisms, most of which are found in Bolivia’s tropical forests, especially in protected areas. Currently Miguel Angel is Director of PROBIOMA, where he is in charge of the reproduction of microorganisms used for biological control. Since 1998 these microorganisms have been used on more than 400,000 hectares and over 60 crops. The use of microorganisms has confirmed for him the value of forests, which has motivated him to work with analog forestry.
