Creating diversified investment opportunities and adapting projects to site specific conditions: We are specialized in combing agricultural and forestry technologies to create more diverse, productive, profitable and sustainable land use systems. In agroforestry, trees are managed together with crops or lifestock farming. This makes agroforestry beneficial over conventional agricultural and forestry methods. It also improves ecological services such as soil quality, biodiversity, water protection and climate resilience.
You have an idea about using your land and want to know whether it can be transformed into solid agroforestry business. We help you to design a site adapted, integrated and climate smart concept including market research, financial potentials, yield analyses, farm evaluation, business plan, and due diligence.
This process can also include matchmaking between agroforestry projects and investors. We scout project for investors and assist in fundraising for projects.
Choosing the right site for agroforestry projects and cocoa plantations is the basic requirement for a successful project. Not only the soil quality, microclimate and the topography are important factors, but also availability and access to set up and operation equipment, labour costs, infrastructure, etc. with our experienced experts we support you in taking the right decisions, adjusted to the implementation strategy and land use concept, from the very start to set up the basis for your enterprise.
A sophisticated cultivation strategy increases the productivity and longevity of the plantation. For our clients, we develop land use management plans for traditional as well as (semi)-mechanized cultivation (nursery management, monitoring, planting, maintenance and harvesting). We are specialized in capacity building and training. We help you to design marketing strategies for your commodities such as cocoa and coffee and provide supervision and quality assessments for investors. We support you with your site adjusted harvesting and post-harvesting strategies. Last not least, we provide mapping and geodata management, monitor and assess land areas through drone data collection.
We are specialized in evaluating and troubleshooting existing operations
to increase efficiency, productivity and quality.
Our detailed knowledge of the cocoa value chain helps us to
detect the sources of contaminants and to implement management
strategies to combat contaminants like e.g. cadmium in cocoa.
Furthermore we support you in the inclusion of alternative benefits (non-timber forest products, eco-tourism), certification schemes (UTZ, FairTrade, FSC, Gold Standard), impact assessments, tracking and tracebility systems to comply with regulations or industry standards.
