The team from Bosques Amazónicos BAM traveled to Costa Rica to receive training in the most advanced processes for genetic improvement as part of the cooperation agreement with the Instituto Técnico de Costa Rica (TEC). Dr. Olman Murillo, representative of TEC, recently visited the BAM’s operating area in Ucayali to study the plantation and train our forestry team.
TEC’s specialists are among the most prolific researchers in the world with regard to tropical species and BAM has more than 50 years of experience with native varieties such as the cocobolo and the almendro.
With the launch of the cloning laboratory at Bosques Amazónicos BAM, the productivity of BAM’s plantations increased 25% a year during the first three years. In the medium term, this will allow the company to provide top-quality genetic material to reforesters at the national and international levels.
