Cultivation of aloe is a biological cultivation, without the need to use hazardous pesticides and fertilizers. In this way, it contributes to the protection of the environment, as it has reduced needs for water and organic fertilizers, while it does not require a large number of expenses per year. Mostly one person can handle 90% of the work during the year.
Aloe vera barbadensis Miller can co exist with harvest domestic animals, such as sheep and turkeys, to remove unwanted and harmful weeds from the plantation. The plantation doesn’t have serious enemies except the snail, which is treated in a biological way.
An important role for the growth of the plant plays the microclimate of the area where it is grown, particularly in areas with mild winter (temperatures above 6 degrees Celsius) and in well-drained soils. Such areas are Crete, the southern Peloponnese, the southern Aegean islands and Cyprus.
Performance of Plantation and Absorption of Production
GG HELLENIC ALOE has created a group of cultivators with whom it collaborates in the form of contractual farming.
There is a seven-year co-operation contract, during which Hellenic Aloe provides the necessary know-how needed by the producer to cultivate the plant properly.
Based on the above contract, there is a guaranteed disposal of production throughout the 7 years. Combined with the guaranteed and pre-agreed security price, it does provide the cultivator with the guaranteed depreciation of their investment within two years of planting. After this point the crop provides a satisfactory income per acre.
