Test Pits

One should pay special attention to the way in which the water is being stored. Water must be stored in a fresh, dark and dry place and it must be kept away from cleaning products and other chemicals. Water can capture the smell from other substances that cannot be detected through the air, so we must always pay attention to the characteristics of other substances stored together with the water.

Usage of Surface water

Surface water comes from the Pativilca river, runs through a comprehensive treatment which begins by: flocculation and coagulation to remove a big amount of the impurities; followed by sedimentation ponds to remove the sands; and finally gravel filters before it enters the fields. The disinfection with hydrogen peroxide is to protect the water against microorganisms and other contaminants that could enter through the pipes.

Integrated Pest Management

At the present time, the agri-food industry promotes the development of these practices, and in AGK the IPM is used since the company started.

We use beneficial predator insects such as the Phytoseiidae mites and the lacewings, as well as the parasitoid trichogramma and tetrastichus wasps.

The use of nematode controllers such as the heteroabditis for insect plagues that inhabit the soil.

For each crop there is an ecosystem where the plants, plagues and bio-controllers develop, that is why we have different species of beneficial insects as required.

Working with the communities

AGROKASA favors its relationship with the neighboring communities within a long-term and sustainable development vision. The neighboring communities are our strategic partners for developing our projects. In this context, we are committed to promote mutually beneficial relationships which will allow us to collaborate with the local self-sustained development through talk, participation, trust and respect towards the population that welcomes us.

AGROKASA (AGK) prioritizes the implementation of development projects in the local communities within its area of influence. For this, AGK has defined five fronts of action:

  • The Development of Educational, Civic and Productive abilities, promoting the participation of the population and supporting local institutions.
  • Specific social, communal and institutional support actions.
  • Supporting the local municipality for the development of basic infrastructure and the implementation of state social assistance programs.
  • Public safety.
  • Agrokasa commits itself to reducing the amount of garbage in Peru.

Sociedad Agrícola Drokasa S.A., with the support of Nature’s Pride foundation, has introduced a separation and recycling program for solid residues in the settlements near their operations in Barranca, Peru.

Garbage is a great challenge in Peru. Many people burn their garbage or dispose of it in public areas. Many times they don’t have the adequate infrastructure for the separation and temporary storage of solid residues, they don’t have the habit of adequately disposing of their garbage and they’re not aware of the harmful effects of their actions on the community’s health and hygiene.

Sociedad Agrícola Drokasa  S.A. is an important employer in Barranca. Working closely with the municipality, they started a comprehensive recycling program. In centric areas of the villages and in schools they have installed containers of different colors for the

recollection and separation of garbage. The schedules of the municipality’s dump trucks have been adjusted to the program in order to attain optimal results. The locals also receive training.

A total of 2500 people participate in this program. Sociedad Agrícola Drokasa S.A. coordinates this program and is currently working on expanding it to other local communities.
