Importance of Pastures

Pasture is the main feeding source for livestock, providing the right quantity of quality nutrients, especially at a low cost, which are the key words for the success of any production system. However, in order to achieve these characteristics, it is necessary to treat pasture as a crop.

Advances in the development of more productive crop varieties and the need to increase meat and milk production require soil fertilization for the establishment and use of pastures, since the increase in the cultivation of grass requires a greater amount of macro and micronutrients.

Advantages of fertilizing pastures:

  • Higher sustainability of the production system.
  • Better establishment of pastures.
  • Increase in the regrowth of pastures.
  • Higher support capacity of farms.

Importance of Nutrients:

Pasture production is limited by the least available nutrient in the soil, even if all other nutrients are available in adequate quantities.

"Brazil has the largest commercial livestock in the world, with beef and milk production contributing substantially to the generation of wealth for the country. In this context, pastures make up the base of the national livestock production system. In order to support Brazilian agriculture, Fertilizantes Heringer S/A implemented the Center for Handling and Fertilizing Pastures (CEMAP), which aims to provide practical and objective information about the rational handling of pastures.”
