About Us

ABOQUETE, S.A., works to supply Latin American farmers with innovative products that help them reduce the use of chemicals on their crops while increasing the productivity and profitability of their operations. With over 10 years of experience in the organic and biological products market, Aboquete specializes in innovative research, design and production of biological controls in the form of insecticides, fungicides and nematicides. Aboquete’s products effectively increase the productivity of crops while reducing the negative impacts of agriculture on the natural environment. Specializing in the use of fungi as a flexible biological control, Aboquete is a pioneer in its home country in the development of this technology. Aboquete’s focus on outreach and education has in recent years influenced Panamanian farmers to become increasingly more aware of the importance of using products that help conserve the environment without affecting their return on investment. Aboquete strives to promote sustainability and act as an example for other businesses in Panama, running its operations solely with renewable energy, using renewable bamboo as material for new construction, and crafting products that reduce the emissions of dangerous methane gas. Aboquete seeks also to build a healthy local economy, fostering strong relationships with Panamanian farmers and providing educational and professional development programs to employees and to domestic and international university students.

The significant national and international recognition that ABOQUETE has received, culminating recently with the ECOPRENER 2011 award in Mongolia, has placed Aboquete in a dominant position in the domestic market. For ten years, over 500 Panamanian customers have used Aboquete’s products with great success, achieving increased crop productivity and overall profits. Our vision is to continue developing and researching innovative new products with a focus on ecological solutions, that improve farm productivity and protect environmental resources.
