The Peruvian territory has diverse ecological levels; it concentrates 84 of the 104 known microclimates and its altitudes and different climates generate exceptional conditions for the development of various crops. It has an extensive coastal strip whose climate – dry tropics – and irrigation regime with rivers that contain silt and organic matter from the mountains, transmit to numerous and fertile valleys exceptional conditions for the development of fruits and vegetables that not only achieve remarkable yields but also , exceptional quality in terms of color, taste and presentation. Then, the numerous inter-Andean valleys and high Andean plateaus stand out where the production of the mountains is concentrated and which are ideal for the development of various grains and tubers resulting from an ancestral and generous biodiversity. Finally, there is the jungle, with high and volcanic areas ideal for developing specialty coffees, tea, and cocoa among others, and with extensive Amazonian plains that make up a captivating low jungle, where various exotic crops are grown. This great diversity of ecological floors, in addition to facilitating a wide range of agricultural products to flourish, many still native, allows staggering harvests and obtaining sustained production throughout the year. The comparative advantages described were used ancestrally with integrated pest and disease management practices and sustainable management for soil conservation and minimizing climatic risks. As witnesses there are slowly forming terraces, platforms, aqueducts and reservoirs that still exist and are used by many farmers to optimize their production systems.
