Copoazu producers

This crop is within an agroforestry system. It is an associated crop, copoazú trees are planted beside legumes, which provide iron to the ground. Producers are responsible for fertilizing and harvesting the fruits. The fruits fall from the trees and producers collect them in bags and separate the seeds, then dry them, and later deliver copoazu’s dry seeds in Candela’s plant in Puerto Maldonado. The main period of gathering is between December to March. Our suppliers are located in the districts of Laberinto and Tambopata, province of Puerto Maldonado,  in Madre de Dios.
