Production of natural fertilizer using
Microorganisms and medicinal plants
The winner AZUABANA is an organization of 46 small and medium-sized banana producers with organic certificates in the Province of Azua, in the south of the Dominican Republic.
This project will help to improve soil fertility and pest and disease control, thereby increasing the production potential in banana cultivation.
The plan is to produce fertilizer by using natural means such as beneficial mountain microorganisms, fermented grass, processed fertilizer and plant foliage, and some of the plants to be planted around the farm have medicinal benefits.
Support is also being given to the conversion of the factory to produce more fertilizer. Finally, partners and external organisations are given the opportunity to participate in training courses on the production and application of fertiliser on the farm.
