During the launch workshop, interested farmers were listed by filling out an Application Form, which gathered personal information about the farmers and their families, technical information about the current production system on their property, available tools and machinery, biophysical characteristics of the land, preliminary knowledge and experience in agroforestry systems.

For the pilot phase, we carried out a selection process to identify the farmers most adhering to the objectives and who had an entrepreneurial and innovative profile., in order to guarantee the success of the project. From this list, we carried out field visits to understand more about the context and general involvement of each farmer and the area available for the implementation of agroforestry systems. The criteria considered during the selection phase were:

  1. Agriculture is the main livelihood of the family.

  2. Solid participation of women in the family.

  3. Active participation of young people in the family.

  4. Visibility / close to public areas (inspiration for other farmers).

  5. Local influencer (multiplier action).

  6. Strong interest in agroforestry (engagement in the Project).

  7. Availability/feasibility of the planting area.

  8. Number of family members (indirect beneficiaries).

  9. Presence at the launch workshop (engagement with the Project).

  10. Possibility of irrigation or close to water bodies (greater chance of seedling survival).

  11. Small farmers.

  12. Take possession of your land.

The selection process resulted in a list of 35 producers.
