Riparian Forests, preservation and recomposition
In order to protect and preserve the environment, permanent preservation strips are left along water courses and the areas for restoration are studied and included in the environmental plan.
Ecological management of pests and diseases
An ecological management of pests and diseases is done where a minimum modulus is considered to begin pest control and also the amount of beneficial insects in the area (Natural Enemies). Besides the proven efficiency and low cost of this method, the consequence is a great contribution to the preservation of the population balance of the species and to the environment in general.
Waste treatment and recycling
In coffee production processes, some high-value fertilizer residues are produced, such as: residual water, coffee husks and boiler ash. These residues are transformed into organic compounds and used as organic fertilizers in coffee plants, replacing partially or totally the mineral sources of potassium, phosphorus and nitrogen. For the residual water, an organic fertilizer machine is used, which allows the return for application in the coffee plantations, replacing totally or partially the mineral source.
The soil is a natural resource that must be used as property of the community, regardless of its use or ownership. It is one of the vital components of the environment and it constitutes the natural substrate for the development of plants. We aim for controlling the use of agricultural inputs in soil management and protect the plants, respecting the existing variability.
