Agroforestry support

The main interest of small producers is the production of food and generating income to support the family, producing in harmony with the environment can achieve a more sustainable rural development. The greatest motivation of producers to adopt agroforestry systems is because it responds at the same time to their economic, social and environmental needs.

Fertilizer Delivery

Faced with the high costs of inputs, our organization supports producers with the delivery of several fertilization cycles, prior to the recommendations given by its technical team.

Soil Improvement

Improve the quality and health of the soil with adequate preparation of the farms of the small El Guabo Banana Producers, to reverse the progressive degradation that has been generated through the intensive exploitation of banana cultivation, for which a permanent training. and personalized with theoretical and practical workshops on the correct way to manage the crop, applying environmentally friendly agronomic practices and making the best use of the biomass provided by banana cultivation.

Asobiol Bioferments

Association of Small Banana Producers El Guabo is committed to the quality of life of its members and the interrelationship with the environment, contributing to conservation and restoration, through alternatives for production. The Biofactory project is focused on improving the quality and productivity of the farms, with healthy and guaranteed soils.
The preparation of inputs based on microorganisms, Beneficial Bio-ferments, contain a positive impact on the environment by providing nutrients to the plantation, improving the texture and providing regenerative organic matter to the soil, obtaining a positive impact on Biodiversity.
All producers are beneficiaries with Biofermentos (AsoBiol).


Thanks to the support of INIAP, IICA AND GIZ, Asoguabo currently has a laboratory to produce trichodermas, which are biological control agents that improve soil health and help in the prevention of diseases such as MOKO and Fusarium, with the hope that its effectiveness in the fight against Foc R4T is confirmed through studies.

Soil, Leaf and Root Analysis

A fundamental tool is the evaluation of the soil fertility of the farms of the APPBG producers, it is important to determine the conditions so that they can be improved, it is the basis for defining the doses of nutrients that are required to be applied.
