CULTIVATION OF SHRUBS AND TREES IN BOLIVIA.
• Planting of teak trees. The project, which offers excellent economic revenue and at the same time pays regard to environmental aspects, which are of utmost importance when it comes to developing the Bolivian countryside.
• Planting of eucalyptus trees. Eucalyptus is a tree rather unpretentious and good growing. The density of dry wood is of 700 to 900 kg/m3; wood has high durability and bio persistence.
• Planting of stevia. One kg of dry leaves of stevia sweetens 150 liters of water. One kg of stevioside (glycosides from the stevia extract) sweetens 1,500 liters of water. With its extracts having up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar, stevia has garnered attention with the rise in demand for low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternatives. Medical research has also shown possible benefits of stevia in treating obesity and high blood pressure. Because stevia has a negligible effect on blood glucose, it is attractive as a natural sweetener to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets.
