Highly productive landscapes
This program intends to implement 1’000 ha of organic mechanized agroforestry systems in the Central and North region of Brazil. Such regions are at the forefront of deforestation and monoculture pressure.
The proposed model includes a great diversity of productive and fruit species, as well as native trees. A total of 20 different plants are integrated into the system.
