Super Greensand® is a premium multi-nutrient natural fertilizer developed to improve the soil and boost plant nourishment. It contains 68 minerals and trace elements, including potassium, iron, magnesium and manganese. Super Greensand® increases the soil’s capacity to retain water and nutrients. Contrary to most potassium fertilizers, Super Greensand®has no additives, no salt and no chlorine. It is approved for organic production by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA).

 “The markets in Brazil and US have warmly welcomed our Super Greensand®, as we expected given the long series of agronomic tests conducted on the product. Now we are working hard to ensure that we can increase production as soon as possible. Our first wholly owned plant will ensure greater supplies at a lower per ton cost, so we are excited to see that work is progressing along the tight schedule we established,” President and CEO, Cristiano Veloso said.
