MAZATLÁN, SINOLOA, MEX - Former President of the Mexican Association of Protected Horticulture (AMHPAC) César Campaña Acosta passed away this week. He was known as a visionary leader with over 20 years of experience in the agricultural industry.
An accomplished grower, Campaña Acosta was born and bred into the industry. He and his brother Francisco were the third generation to oversee Agricola Campaña, a producer and exporter of grains and vegetables, according to a press release from Eleven River Growers.
