Rain Forest Sustainable Farming

The Sacha Inchi plant starts flowering within five months and fruiting within just eight months of planting. With a lifespan of over 10 years, it is a sustainable crop and the plant provides a steady, reliable source of income for the Amazonian grower while minimizing the overuse of precious lands. Solids left over from the oil production, rich in proteins and with good nutritional value, are being used to feed cattle.
