When a farmer enrolls in KOMAZA's program, they are provided with:
Training: Prior to planting, farmers receive substantial training from our field staff covering best practices for preparing their land.
Planting Inputs: KOMAZA provides families with the best possible planting inputs, including eucalyptus GC clonal seedlings, seeds for short-term crops, water-retaining polymers, and fertilizers.
Maintenance Support: Field staff members provide farmers with regular on-farm and village training throughout the lifetime of their tree farm.
Harvest & Sales Support: KOMAZA harvests and sells a portion of trees from each farm multiple times over a 13-15-year harvest cycle. Because of a property called coppicing, eucalyptus stumps can re-grow high-quality repeat harvests, providing farmers with decades of continuous income.
Continued Relationship: KOMAZA's relationship with farmers continues long after harvest, as we work with farmers to devise spending strategies for new income and ensure that they can access a range of investment options.
