Whereas buying this pure fertilizer – with a small imported part – the associated fee for farmers is lowered, in addition to financial and technical features that favor its approval.
One other profit within the software of the Nereas is that with low concentrations extra areas of cultivation might be lined with excessive ranges of effectivity, and this consequently leads to financial savings in transportation.
Though he emphasised that these zeofertilizers ought to be used in response to the crop, since every one carries a sure dose, and clarified that relying on the sowing, they may produce as much as 50 tons of Nerea for every ton of imported fertilizer.
As well as, he assured, they impact the advance of the soil as a result of by incorporating minerals it contributes to its productive capability.
For this yr, he added, the manufacturing of about 5 thousand tons of Nerea is predicted, and harassed that with about one thousand tons an essential fertilization space might be lined if one takes into consideration that its use might be two kilograms per hectare.
However there are nonetheless some points pending, he mentioned, such because the affordable distribution from Nerea’s manufacturing amenities in Geomining corporations all through the nation to cut back transportation prices to the varied poles of agriculture.
One other problem for the business is to extend the productive capability and incorporate pure vitamins, assure the packaging and the logistics of selling and transportation within the agricultural enterprise system, Rodríguez added.
It’s a constructive expertise, of how a expertise switch from a college to an organization can deliver advantages to the events concerned, he mentioned.
To increase on the topic, Prensa Latina approached the Benefit researcher from the College of Havana and Physician of Science Gerardo Rodríguez, one of many forerunners of analysis on the applying of zeolite in fertilizers.

Created 30 years in the past and deprived by the consequences of the so-called Particular Interval, in 2018 work on this manufacturing line was intensified because of the lack of fertilizers.
Nerea is a generic model, he defined, with 5 traces of zeofertilizers protected by the economic secret of the College of Havana, and not too long ago patented from the pursuits of overseas corporations.
In keeping with Rodríguez, the precept of the Nereas is to include the precise vitamins required by the plantations into the fertilizers, and if they aren’t used, they’re stored for the following harvest.
