The main objective of this project is to increase the competitiveness of fruit producers in Colombia through a system of site-specific agriculture based on shared experiences (SSAFE) between producers of citrus, avocado, mango, and banana. The system is designed so that it continues over the long-term and contributes to improved decision-making on the selection and management of fruit trees by farmers around the country. Research on the four production chains will serve as a basis to expand the system later to cover other species of fruit trees.
