Our plan to grow Jatropha curcas Linnaeus in marginal land of Flores Island to create and promote sustainable economy for local farmers and help offset the global climatic change.
We started planting 142 hectares using Farmer's garden concept during rainy season 2008 which started in November 2007 for Flores, Island. During rainy season 2009 we planted additional 180 hectares, that made our Jatropha gardens become 322 hectares. During rainy season we plan to plant 89 hectares in Palue Island and about 100 more hectares in Flores Island, but unfortunately rainfall is so little during the rainy season 2010 we only grow additional 20 hectares. Up to now we have planted 342 hectares altogether.

We characterized our Jatropha Growing Program by the following characteristics:
1. Utilize of marginal, critical and under-utilized types of land that are not used for food production, this way we do not interfere or compete with farmers subsistence for food production. We do not contribute to the increasing food prices. Our energy crop does not compete for the same land farmers’ use for food production.
2. Apply, in all aspects, sustainable agricultural practices and conservation measures.
3. Strictly avoid forest cutting or formerly forested areas for our Jatropha planting.
4. Prepare our partnering farmers to become “bosses” of their own Jatropha garden. As a boss farmers have to learn to manage their Jatropha garden and make their garden become productive sustainably.
5. Focus in pro-poor orientation through community sustainable economic development and entrepreneurial activities to aim at poverty alleviation.
6. Orient our partnering farmers toward a cooperative behavior by sharing 10% of company’s profit with our partnering farmers.
7. Fair Trade and Fair Price to partnering farmers. We consider fair price for their Jatropha beans we buy from them is crucial to the success of our program. We want to pay farmer the best price they expect.
8. We plan to run associated program that will bring more income to our farmers and their families. Teakwood growing, Bee-keeping, cattle fattening are some of the spin-off program we would like to do.
9. Program should be based on research and meeting farmers’ needs.
10. Orientation toward contribution to global efforts to control the climate change.
11. Promote Eco-tourism through creation of Jatropha Eco-Village.
12. Apply a holistic approach a perception that encourages activities inter-relates to one another, help one another.

Questions and feedbacks are welcomed.

Greetings Elias, I work with Costa Rica Invest. Costa Rica's ideal conditions, drip irrigation, special seeds with high oil content, & Macuaba Palm intercropping, can produce top yields. Many potential clients in North America and Europe have expressed preference to source Jatropha from Costa Rica rather than India, China ect due to proximity and Costa Rica's political stability (no army).
