About us

We are CKAPUR, a multidisciplinary
team of scientists, biotechnologists,
and agronomists

Somos un equipo multidisciplinario de científicos, biotecnólogos y agrónomos

We work synergistically with one clear objective:
to improve crop nutrition using extremophile
microorganisms, which promote plant growth even in
the most extreme conditions.

Our team of scientists has proven
this technology in the field, with
excellent results, after 20 years
of studying life in the salt flats
and highest deserts on Earth. Since
2017, they have started field
trials across Argentina and now work
on the fine-tuning of the world’s
first extremophile bioinoculan.

Compromiso CKAPUR - comunidades originarias

CKAPUR’s social commitment:
Native communities

Compromiso CKAPUR - comunidades originarias

The Andean Puna is inhabited by native communities that have maintained the culture and forms of life from the Past. They are the original inhabitants of territories including salt flats, volcanoes, and lagoons. The scientific team led by Dr. Farias has closely worked together with different native communities: Kollas Atacameñas from Salta, Catamarca (Argentina), Atacama (Chile) and Mayas (Quintana Roo, México) educating, communicating, and supporting the conservation of extremophile ecosystems in those regions.

Compromiso CKAPUR - comunidades originarias

As proof of our social commitment, and following the Nagoya protocol, CKAPUR pledges a percentage of our sales to support the local communities, and the provinces where the biodiversity that supports our technology was discovered.

In this way, preserving biodiversity not only protects the
planet, but also creates positive economic value to the local
communities and governments.
