Verde’s products are derived from an ancient 570 million years old rock named “glauconitic siltstone”, rich in a mineral called glauconite. The production process is 100% natural.
Along 10 years researching glauconitic siltstone’s proprieties, Verde has reached large landmarks:
Geological survey over 123,592 hectares
48,000 meters of drilling
More than 60,000 samples analyzed
716 rotopercussive drilling holes
70 diamond drill holes
Financed 2 masters and 2 doctorates
Super Greensand® is commercialized in Brazil as K Forte®. Product is an alternative to Potassium Chloride (KCl), which is a widely used fertilizer by Brazilian farmers. Compared to KCI, which is not the most suitable product for tropical agriculture, K Forte® has great advantages:
It does not add salt or chloride to the soil;
Is approved for organic production;
Its silicon content increases plant resistance against pests and diseases;
Its production site is close to the largest agricultural region of the country, the Brazilian savannah (Cerrado).
Verde is actively developing new products and new applications for making the agriculture activity more sustainable, the food production with more quality and the environment healthier.
