Peruvian Resource

Maca is found only in the central highlands of Peru, mainly on the Junin plateau between 3,800 to 4,400 m.a.s.l., where altitude, low temperatures and strong winds limit other crops. Domestication of this plant appears to have started at least 2,000 years ago. Ecoandino has its maca fields associated with small organic farmers on this plateau.
