Corn - Cibra Fertilizantes


The corn crop is one of the most important in Brazil
and in the world. It is the second largest in Brazilian
agricultural production, surpassed only by soybeans.


Brazil is the world’s largest exporter of corn, which demonstrates its importance to the national economy.

What do you need to know

Nitrogen (N) is the nutrient with the highest demand for corn, as it is the main constituent of proteins and a boost to productivity.

Corn is one of the main crops produced in the country due to its important nutritional properties, for both human and animal food.

In many regions of the country, the crop succession system for soybeans and safrinha corn represents an essential practice for optimizing the use of the area. And in this scenario, in order to achieve high yields, it is essential that the producer adopts technologies that improve soil quality and provide adequate fertilization.

Nitrogen (N) is the nutrient with the greatest demand for corn, as it is the main constituent of proteins, being determinant for productivity.

However, the way nitrogen fertilization is carried out can cause losses that interfere with its efficiency and the availability of the element, especially those that occur by volatilization.

To obtain greater efficiency in the use of nitrogen fertilization, Cibra counts on Nitrocap, which is a fertilizer with a high concentration of nitrogen, which provides lower losses by volatilization with the consequent increase in the productivity of the corn crop and greater safety for the producer.
