The guar and the acacia trees are basic elements for agroforestry. The trees with deep roots have access to water and make the soil suitable for growing crops. The guar is high in nitrogen and gives feeding to the trees and other crops. Therefor you do not need any fertilizers for the crops when the trees and guar grow in the same soil.
With the philosophy of the circular economy, we try to use every part of the products in the food chains. For example, the green waste of all the products is used as animal fodder.
The guar beans are split, and the guar splits are used for healthy food powder and industrial powder. Each sub product in the process can be used in certain applications.
The grains are cleaned and hulled and then milled into flour. The flour will be mixed with gum food powder which gives a good basis for healthy high fiber bread.
Fair Agro Food supports the growing of guar, sorghum, millet and corn in between acacia trees. Farmers cut small holes in the acacia trees and derive gum acacia from it. The guar is a kind of bean and is rich of fibers. It is processed to food powder for food applications, animal fodder and products for other applications. The sorghum, millet and corn are processed to flour and mixed with guar food powder for healthy products.
All cooperatives and small holders associated with Fair Agro Food get training for the best practices in agroforestry regarding weeding, sowing and harvesting. Farmers are advised on and provided with the best quality seeds. During these processes Fair Agro Food supports in services like machinery to do the activities mechanized. After harvesting, Fair Agro Food buys the products for a fair price.
