Pasture and Forage - Cibra Fertilizantes

Pasture and Forage

Brazilian livestock is considered one of
the most productive in the world.


Activity with great economic potential, Brazil is one of the main producers and exporters of meat in the world. In addition to having one of the largest dairy basins in the world.

What do you need to know

Pastures need a large amount of nitrogen to support all Brazilian livestock production.

Currently, Brazil has the largest cattle herd in the world, for this reason, the pasture areas in the country are around 154 million hectares, so that they can provide forage to the entire Brazilian herd. Our soils in general are poor soils with low availability of absorbable nutrients for the cycling of these perennial and annual pastures to occur.

In order to supply essential macronutrients, such as Phosphorus (P) and Calcium (Ca) for these forage crops, the Cibrativ fertilizer (Natural Reactive Phosphate) becomes a viable option, as it provides these macronutrients in a balanced way according to the nutritional demand of plants.

Still in the case of forage crops, especially with regard to grasses, we have a high demand for the macronutrient Nitrogen (N).

Cibra has a range of nitrogen fertilizers from the Nitrocap line, which allows us to supply pasture and hay crops, a source of amide nitrogen via Urea, reducing the loss of nutrient volatilization. In addition to also having options with part of the source being ammoniacal nitrogen, more stable in terms of losses and the possibility of input of Sulfur (S), which is also an essential macronutrient for the development of crops.
