HOUSTON, TEXAS – 11/29/2018 (

Turf Feeding Systems, a Texas company, is soon starting Monarca Growing Center in rural Yucatan Mexico to grow high value organic produce and also grow the rural economy and humanity.

Monarca will change the Yucatan one hectare and family at a time.

The Yucatan of Mexico was one of the most advanced indigenous cultures of the ancient Americas. Today it has sun, water, labor, but lacks fertile soil and jobs.  Monarca will bring together resources of the Yucatan with the talents of the Mayan people to create Monarca Growing Center in rural Yucatan.

The Monarca Growing Center will be the most advanced High Yield Growing System (HYGS) in Mexico.  It will produce high quality organic produce using new growing technologies and empower the talents and heritage of the local people.  Not as employees, but as team members with a common goal for the production of the highest quality food produced in Mexico.

Michael Chaplinsky, the president of Turf Feeding Systems explains, “This is a unique project, because for the first time in Mexico, it brings together the visionary management of Jack Katz and his staff of scientists, engineers and agronomist who have the passion and experience to create the Monarca HYGS in rural Yucatan.”
