Yoorin Fertilizers will participate in FEACOOP, the business fair of the São Paulo Coffee and Citrus Growers Cooperative – Coopercitrus. The 19th edition of the event, which will take place from July 30th to August 2nd, at EECB (Estação Experimental de Citricultura de Bebedouro – São Paulo), expects to bring together more than 160 exhibitors in 104 thousand m².

In its latest technical bulletin, the company carried out an analysis of Pêra-Rio orange production in Sunki in Itápolis, in the interior of São Paulo. When the producer's standard soil nutrition is also made up of Yoorin fertilizer, the company's thermophosphate input, there is a large increase in productivity. In the 2015/16 harvest, there was an increase of 85,8 boxes per hectare in production. In the following crop, 2016/17, there were 50 more cxs/ha when compared to standard nutrition.

For the agronomist at Yoorin Fertilizers, Robson Murate, the benefits of using thermophosphate go beyond productivity. "Our product has a range of important micronutrients and has a residual effect due to its gradual release, only when demanded by the plant. Furthermore, in its production, the fertilizer goes through a physical and non-chemical mixing process, being approved and certified for use in organic crops.

The premium fertilizer industry will present its portfolio with different conditions to its members and fair participants.
