A new paradigm is rising
based on the appreciation of microorganisms.

Recent FAO report “State of Knowledge of Soil Biodiversity” highlights the importance in protecting soil
biodiversity and presents the solutions that it can provide.

Raw materials are subjected to physical transformations, increasing their specific surfaces and forming microparticles that release nutrients progressively.

The fertilizers resulting from the mixture are homogeneous and are distributed evenly in the soil, without segregation. 

Granulometry impact assessment

Researchers from the State University of São Paulo conducted a study on soybean crops, revealing that the granulometry of the sulfur source plays a vital role in sulfur availability to plants.

Four sulfur sources were tested: pelleted elemental sulfur, plaster, gypsum, and powdered elemental sulfur (micronized). 

Improved performance yield

The application of micronized sulfur resulted in higher pod count, grain count, and grain yield per pod compared to pelleted sulfur sources.

This demonstrates that smaller particle sizes of sulfur provide a larger contact surface area for soil reaction. 

Enhanced soil interaction and nutrient availability

Smaller sulfur particles disperse easily in the soil, enabling better interaction with microorganisms. This leads to increased oxidation rates and improved nutrient availability for plants. 

Sulfur absorption and plant development are positively impacted by the smaller particle size, as indicated by the charts showing the interaction effect on soybean pod count (A), grain count (B), and grain yield (C) with different sulfur levels and sources (elementary pastille – ESPA and micronized elementary sulfur – ESPO):

Learn more about our products

We offer a way out of Brazil’s dependency on imported inputs.

Developed in collaboration with the University of Cambridge, Cambridge Tech boosts the benefits of progressive nutrient release for the crops nourished by our products. 

Extended availability of nutrients

Progressive release technology ensures that nutrients remain accessible to plants over an extended period, providing continuous nourishment throughout the crop cycle. 

Reduced product loss

The controlled release of nutrients minimizes leaching, preventing excessive loss of valuable nutrients and optimizing their utilization by plants. 

Cost-effective application

Since progressive release products deliver nutrients over an extended period, a single application per harvest is sufficient, resulting in reduced operational costs.

Photographs taken under a scanning electron microscope 2000x magnification show the structure of Glauconitic Siltstone before and after undergoing the Cambridge Tech process:

Before

Glauconite particles with an average size of 8 microns 

After

Particles became thinner (4 microns), dispersed in clots, and became more spherical, increasing the surface area.

N Keeper allows our products to effectively retain ammonia when used as a calibrated additive in Nitrogen fertilizers.

This combination is responsible for the reduction of nitrogen volatilization loss, allowing more agronomic efficiency for farmers and contributing to the reduction of the global warming impacts caused by nitrogen fertilizers manufacturing and application. 

Nitrogen is part of the NPK triad (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium), as one of the most important for plants

However, the production of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers is a significant source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, with fossil fuel mining and transportation, ammonia synthesis and conversion of ammonia to various N fertilizer products.

Studies report that up to 75% of the total GHG emission in crop production resulted from the use of nitrogen fertilizers

The application of synthetic N fertilizers is recognized as the most important factor contributing to direct nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from agricultural soils.  
N2O is a potent GHG, with a 298 higher global warming potential in a 100-year timeframe than carbon dioxide (CO2).  

The main source of Nitrogen in Brazilian agriculture is urea, mainly due to its low cost in comparison to other sources

Nonetheless, this fertilizer shows low use efficiency under field conditions, due to the high susceptibility to losses, such as ammonia (NH3) volatilization.

Independent research concluded that the use of our products processed with the N Keeper technology, showed a potential to reduce relative ammonia volatilization between 10% to 27%, depending on the proportion of product employed, when compared to conventional regular use of urea without any of it.

N Keeper allows our products to effectively retain ammonia when used as a calibrated additive in Nitrogen fertilizers. 

This combination is responsible for the reduction of nitrogen volatilization loss, allowing more agronomic efficiency for farmers and contributing to the reduction of the global warming impacts caused by nitrogen fertilizers manufacturing and application. 

N Keeper accentuates the negative correlations in the glauconite grains, identified by electron micro spread dispersive energy spectrometer in an electronic microprobe, indicating cationic substitutions giving to the mineral the characteristics of an anion. 

These unbalanced anions allow cationic exchanges between the potassium present in interlayers of glauconite with ammonium (NH4+) ions present in the soil.

Hence, N Keeper provides a high capacity of ammonia retention, leading to the reduction of nitrogen volatilization loss.
