New Market in South America: Brazil
The future of Perlka® in Brazil.
Perlka® has entered one of the main fertilizer markets in the world: Brazil. In November 2020, we delivered our first container to the state of Santa Catarina.
The initial focus will be on the states of Santa Catarina, Paraná and São Paulo in the so called “Cinturões Verdes”. These are the green belts surrounding the main cities where most of the horticulture takes place and where we target crops such as Tomato, Broccoli or Cabbage. In the state of São Paulo, the first trials with a large international seed company are already running and the first reports are very promising. We are confident that Perlka® will make a major contribution to agriculture in Brazil.
Calcium cyanamide is a very special fertilizer. It not only supplies the soil with nitrogen and lime but it also offers a range of other unique special effects. Many farmers insist on calcium cyanamide or PERLKA® in order to prevent yield and quality losses during increasingly tight crop rotations, or to be able to manage them properly once again. Why? – because soil hygiene is more important than ever to ensure sustainable production.
