‘Amaranth: science seeds’ is a three-year agricultural and food safety project whose direct beneficiaries are 1.824 Tarija’s amaranth producers (200 families). The project aims to solve several problems related to amaranth-growing – inefficiencies in both growing and harvest methods; low output and high losses over the production process; water shortage; high production costs and use of chemical fertilizers dealing to soil compaction – by: 1) Rising organic amaranth-growing through appropriated techniques for cultivation and the use of soil and water; 2) Setting up an Association of amaranth producers and boosting amaranth-derivatives production; 3) Increasing local consumption and trade of amaranth and its derivatives. ASPEm is the Italian NGO responsible for the initiative, that is jointly implemented with a national trade network as local counterpart (RENACC-TARIJA). read more close
