In Madagascar, Tozzi Green has developed several different crops in the Ihorombe region, in the southern part of the country, in the Ihosy District and distributed across the municipalities of Satrokala, Andiolava, and Ambatolahy.
These lands are so difficult to farm that they have never attracted the interest of agro-industrial entities. Crops are selected on the basis of their ability to adapt to the characteristics of the soil and the local climate.
Over the years, after various experiments, Tozzi Green succeeded in introducing different varieties of crops.
Today, where there was previously only arid land destined to become desert, one can see green areas and the appearance of mammals, birds, insects, chameleons, and bees.
The diversification of crops, including individual pineapple plants, fruit trees and the care of the gardens, has enriched biodiversity which, in these particular areas, was in danger of a progressive and inevitable decline.
By developing crop varieties suited to the region’s specific characteristics and improving agronomic techniques that allow soil fertilisation through the improvement of its agricultural qualities, Tozzi Green’s activities have reclaimed over 7,300 hectares of degraded and marginal land, saving it from desertification and transforming it into fertile agricultural land.
