Commercial area members are responsible for positioning the nutrients our soils need, through the retail (distribution network) and wholesale channels, undertaking a commitment with the industry and the domestic market to collaborate with the nutrition of crops using our products. They always provide the support to educate and train in the correct and sustainable use of nutrients.

Prosuelos Program

Integral training program to promote the Responsible Management of Nutrients (4R), seeking to raise awareness about all aspects related to the care of the “Soil Resource”.

Prosuelos is based mainly on Soil Analysis as a starting point for the diagnosis of soil fertility and the determination of the necessary amounts of each nutrient to complete the requirements of the crop (correct dosage). Then, based on supplementary information or tools, it will be decided which the most efficient source is, time and way to apply these nutrients, seeking to preserve the economic result and at the same time mitigate the environmental impacts of the practice.

Innovation and Technology Models

They are experimental production units on different crops (wheat, corn, sugar cane, etc.), for demonstrating in the field the benefits of adopting Best Management Practices for fertilizer application (4R). These conferences include the characterization of soils through “Calicatas” and its Soil Analysis, the consolidation of the concept of Balanced Nutrition, the demonstration of the effects of different sources, ways or times of fertilizer application in different treatments for the efficient use of nutrients and the mitigation of their impact on the environment.

Innovation and Technology Models for APPLICATION of solid fertilizers

Based on the Technological Innovation Models (MIT, for its acronym in Spanish) concept and always with the objective of promoting the Best Management Practices for fertilizer application (4R- source-dose-time-way), since 2008 Profertil, in association with recognized companies in the sector, carries out specific events to promote the correct application of solid fertilizers on the surface. In them, the producers will be able to observe machines in action, learn how to regulate them and get information about the models available in the market that will allow them to make more efficient applications both in homogeneous doses and specific sites, seeking to place the nutrients where the crop can best take advantage of them by mitigating the environmental impact and improving its economic equation.

Mitings

These ad hoc training activities are also derived from the concept of Innovation and Technology Models (MIT) and are organized by our technical team with different target audiences, producers, advisors, distributors. Through different agile and interactive participatory dynamics, our team shares experiences and information on local productive situations that allow promoting the concept of Responsible Fertilizer Management – 4R- applying the Best Practices on crop nutrition.

Risk Prevention Program in Rural Areas

Profertil works every day with the highest standards of hygiene and safety, aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. For this reason, starting in 2021, we introduced the Risk Prevention Program in Rural Areas.
There are tasks that involve the use of machines, tools, livestock handling and chemical products, which require special attention to work safely.

This program is aimed at agricultural producers, professionals, technicians and workers of the sector, Health and Safety services of companies, those who work in the field of Hygiene and Safety in rural areas, teachers of agro-technical schools and universities, students of degrees in agronomic studies, agricultural-related public organizations (Minagri, INTA, Ministry of Science and Technology), among other possible stakeholders.

PROPOSED OBJECTIVES

Provide knowledge and tools to:

  • Learn about the risk factors derived from the agricultural environment, the characteristics of its stakeholders, the technology adopted, and the organization in the work processes.
  • Deepen risk prevention concepts; collaborate for the adequate implementation of quality protocols and Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) in the field. 
  • Improve the working conditions and the environment in the productive sector, protecting the health and safety of workers.
  • Achieve quality, traceability, and GAP in the agri-food and production system in general, in order to achieve sustainable agriculture over time, taking into account occupational risk prevention.
