About us

Since its foundation in 1983, AGROFORESTAL has been a pioneer in agro-industrial activities, reforestation, and in establishing late-yielding plantations in terrains with high agricultural and economic development, in harmony with the environment.

Mission

AGROFORESTAL drives agricultural, social and economic development in Colombia, by using suitable lands and managing natural resources properly. 

Vision

To become leaders in the development, application and marketing of new agro-industrial models for better use and strengthening of natural resources, while preserving Colombian’s biodiversity.

Projects

Our projects are aimed at the livestock and agriculture with emphasis on the production of Jatropha.

Livestock

Cattle operation is one of the main projects of AGROFORESTAL de Colombia. Thanks to our infrastructure, we are able to stock an average of 400 head of livestock in a 2,000 M2 (21528 Ft2) area.


AGROFORESTAL offers ideal conditions for animal feeding, herd health and maintenance, which favors their development.

The livestock or cattle grazing rotating system project
consists of 3 stages, namely:
1. Selective breeding
2. Voisin grazing management system
3. Stock cattle

Seed production

Jatropha Curcas



The escalating global trend in oil markets has been a motivation to many countries to search for new for new fuel alternatives to be able to stop environmental damage as well as replacing oil and its derivatives.

The jatropha curcas is a non-edible plant whose seed contains high viscosity oil, ideal for biofuel production.

Agroforestry

in Vichada

It includes the development of activities in the region of Puerto Carreno, Vichada, designed to encourage the planting of plant species that are as raw material for the extraction of oil from oil and use in biofuels, reforestation and commercial feedlot livestock.
We are committed to the care and development of natural resources and the quality of life of those who are part of rural communities.

Services

Agroforestal of Colombia has the necessary staff highly qualified and trained to develop their investment projects in the agribusiness sector, either as producer or purchaser of seeds as infrastructure and agribusiness entrepreneur.

Sale of seeds

For those who want to buy seeds of Jatropha Curcas and wish to cultivate the Jatropha oil production.

Jatropha Curcas

Beginning


The upward trend in world oil markets, has led many countries to search for new alternatives for the development of bio-fuels, curbing the environmental impact and remplacen oil and its derivatives.

Characteristics


Projects planting Jatropha Curcas, now have a high development potential, because its seed contains between 28% and 34% * of oil, which makes it a source of non-conventional renewable energy, low cost and environmentally friendly * Source of data:. Internet.

The high viscosity of the oil derived from the seeds of Jatropha Curcas, in addition to its calorific value, is ideal for the production of biofuel.

Additionally, the shell of Jatropha Curcas, has a high fiber content, calories and carbohydrates. Among the most representative elements of the plant are, phosphorus and potassium, thanks to which, the shell can be used as substrate for soil fertilization.

Finally seed cake has a high content of sulfur, calcium, sodium, and high levels of calories and carbohydrates, making it ideal for animal consumption.
