SIMULCAST WITH MICHOACÁN: LAND EROSION AND PESTICIDES. The massive deforestation of the Mexican Northern Sierras has caused vast soil erosion in the region. This lack of productive land to grow any kind of crops has expelled many farm workers out of their homeland. The farm workers tend to migrate to the north and into the United States, in which fields of modern agriculture they find the abundant use of pesticides.
This is a simulcast with the twelve-station network of Radio Michoacán in Morelia.
