As fourth generation farmers, we understand the inherent challenges that large scale farming entails across multiple crop species. We employ a full-time force of nearly 80 farmhands who work the land on a daily basis. For decades we have managed both our own agricultural interests in addition to many other local plantations with great success.
Successful farms are developed over years, with blisters, sweat, and a passionate love for the land. In the end, we create productive and lasting relationships with the lands we cultivate. We become one with the land we serve.
Crop Management is a full time job. We strive to remain market leaders and innovators where technical improvements and natural biological breakthroughs can benefit the entire world. A farming plan is developed yearly and updated daily as appropriate, for each farm that is under our care. The plan is also importantly designed to cultivate and sell crops, at the highest price points possible.
Certified Organic FarmersCampo Organico is one of the leading companies in the agricultural sector in Panama for the research and development of crop feasibility, organic farming techniques, permaculture, biotechnology and cultivars. As an esteemed member of the City of Knowledge in Panama, we don't believe in just growing produce but also believe that more should be done to limit the effects of modern agriculture on the world’s resources and population. This is why all of our plantations are organic with no chemical pesticide use. We believe that there is a right and wrong way to grow agriculture and therefore choose to submit all of our investor plantations for international organic certification.
Sale of ProduceIn coordination with Campo Orangico, Simply Natural Investments will manage the sale of your fruit all the way to the retail marketplace. Our return projections are based on current local market rates, however, we plan to export your produce to maximize profitability. Our strategic location to the Panama Canal gives us a strategic advantage over other Latin and South American exporters. Our produce can be picked, packed, and on it’s way to US and European markets in as little as 8 hours. Most Latin American and South American exporters can take up to 2 weeks just to get to the Panama Canal. Fresher produce, means higher prices and greater demand for our produce. The demand in local markets has also been growing at a rapid pace. Panama for example, imports 80% of its Mangoes. This means that, should we choose to, there is an abundance of marketing opportunities on our doorstep.
Crop NutrientsCampo Organico provides customers with an Integrated Plant Nutrition System that both maintains and increases the productivity of soils by using balanced soil and organic crop nutrients. We utilize micro-nutrients such as nitrogen (N), potassium (K), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), phosphorus (P), sulfur (S), chlorine (Cl), boron (B), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), Zinc (Zn), copper (Cu) and molybdenum (Mo), based on a biotechnological aerobic and anaerobic fermentation process which we manufacture carefully and make available for scalability.
Campo Organico’s Bio Neem is a naturally occurring pesticide and fungicide product derived from the Neem plant. Neem is a neuro-inhibitor of most agricultural pests which acts symbiotically with crops, to cut the reproductive cycles of pests while effectively stopping the growth of harmful fungus.
Bio Neem acts as a growth inhibitor for insects as an antifeedant, which in effect prolongs the immature stages of pests by diminishing fertility and killing their reproductive cycles. It lowers the levels of protein and amino acids in the hemolymph and interferes with the synthesis of chitin.
Azadirachtin is the active component in Neem whose characteristics intervene in the chemical and physiological processes of insect development. These features help to make Campo Organico’s Bio Neem, a superior product to act against fungi, arthropods, insects, and nematodes that attack plants and crops. The result is a better, stronger crop yield, and a permaculture of agricultural success.
