About the Guavira Project

Its objective is to encourage the creation of a network of people and entities dedicated to researching, growing, obtaining products and marketing guavira, seeking to value the enormous potential of this plant.

For the objective to be achieved, the synergy between government areas, the productive sector, farmers and research and extension institutions is crucial.

The project's mission is to build an integrated network of scientific, technological and innovation knowledge focusing on the guavira and the biodiversity of Mato Grosso do Sul to support decision-making, aiming at its sustainable use and contributing to the economic development of the State.

Cohesion for the integration of actions should produce the desired effects, in the sense of creating an environment conducive to innovation, in order to transform knowledge into wealth for Mato Grosso do Sul.

What are the challenges?

  • A major challenge lies in communication, that is, making this knowledge accessible to everyone, disseminating information so that people, institutions and companies can use this fruit in new products and thus also encourage cultivation.


  • Raise awareness among companies about the business potential of guavira.


  • Promote the competitiveness of this production chain through sustainability.


  • Mapping the situation and properties that grow guavira in the state is a constant challenge and, within the actions, it is necessary to know the state of the art.


  • Working in an integrated way between research institutions, companies, producers and promoters of popularization of this fruit.


  • Generate competitive products in the market that can be the result of socio-biodiversity.


  • Innovate transversally as one of the alternatives to leverage development, through science and technology.

Whats the matter?

Integrate existing knowledge of the subject obtained by different entities and people, as well as generate new knowledge obtained through network research that can enhance this fruit and add economic value.

It is important to highlight that, by generating this knowledge, we can align biodiversity conservation strategies, promoting sustainable economic development.
