Elaboration of Agroforestry Designs, Market Study and Feasibility Analysis, includes search for investors and potential buyers;
PENTAGRAMA develops and manages large scale agroforestry systems (AFSs) projects with high added value products and growing market demand. We offer projects with technical/financial feasibility, professional governance and reduced risks to investors, producers and distributors.
We have a portfolio of projects resulting from the accumulation of experiences already developed in several biomes and crops, with detailed financial modeling that demonstrates attractive investment return.
Our AFS model includes the use of developed and validated technologies, with the integration of mechanization, precision farming practices and digital technologies.
One of the great business opportunities that this model makes possible is the restoration of degraded areas of low commercial value with the regeneration of its productive capacity and consequent appreciation.
AFS Nut and Cocoa – Amazon Biome
We created bridges with the main actors in the production chain to make greater investments feasible and for SAFs to be relevant in the context of agribusiness and forest restoration
in the various Brazilian biomes.

Fazenda Amigos do Cerrado is the largest organic lemon producer in Brasilia and supplies to large supermarkets in the region, and from 2020 onwards to one of the largest restaurant chains in Brazil.
In five years we carried out the implantation and validation of a prototype for large scale AFS in the Cerrado Biome, its conversion to organic AFS, creation of a brand with SEBRAE support, certification and award in the Sustainable Initiatives Competition of Brasília Environmental office. This was made possible through the adaptation and transfer of technologies developed in previous experiences (Natura and Fazenda da Toca).
“Production systems that combine trees, crops, pastures and / or animals. The composition of agricultural crops with trees guarantees production, profitability associated with socio-environmental benefits. ” (Melo, E. 2012)
It is a system of production and use of the soil that cultivates in space and time with the optimization of resources and areas:
|Arboreal or shrub, fruit, timber or fertilizer species||Ability to capture deeper nutrients from the soil and provide medium and long-term income in the system|
|Species that remain in the system for two to three years being implanted at the beginning of the system||Income generation in the short and medium term|
|Agricultural components||Short-term income option|
|Animal component||Income diversification|
There are several possible arrangements:
“A reference paradigm that allows to bridge the gap between production and conservation.” (Melo, E. 2012)

“Agroforestry systems generate multi-solutions.” (Capra, F. 2016)
AFSs enhance positive impacts with a lasting and virtuous effect on production chains, which respond to the challenges of the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
