Overview

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.

    Which departments of Colombia produce the most fruit?

    • Hello Charles

      According to our findings (for four crops : Citrus, Plantain, avocado and Mango) Tolima, Valle del Cauca, Antioquia and Huila are the most productive departments

      For further information on other crops and regions, we suggest you to get contact with the Association of Fruit and Vegetable Growers in Colombia (ASOHOFRUOL)
