The blueberry plantations in the fields of Pisco are doing very well at this point in time. Juan Pablo Bentín is one of the pioneers in the cultivation of blueberries in Peru and not only that, but he is also a pioneer in developing cultivation in a soil made up of 99% sand, in the dunes of the Pisco area, south of Lima.
Currently, without abandoning the original crops of Biloxi and other varieties, Juan Pablo Bentín is developing a project with new genetics in the dunes of the Pisco area, south of Lima. This is a large project that includes the planting of 400 hectares with varieties of the Australian Mountain Blue Orchards (MBO).
Bentín: "The start-up project contemplates an area of 400 hectares with MBO varieties, with annual growth of 100 hectares, that is, by 2023 we should have 400 hectares planted. Along these lines, as of November 2021 we have already completed 200 hectares and we are in the process of developing the third stage in 2022."
