The Company invests in the research and development of new technologies which may be used in its fertilizer production line. As a result, Heringer currently has one of the largest portfolios of specialty products, most of them with proprietary technology. The agronomic properties of these specialty products are superior to those of conventional fertilizers, ensuring higher crop yields. These improved yields are documented through experiments carried out by renowned research institutions, as well as the testimony of countless farmers who have used these fertilizers.

In addition to our products, Heringer maintains an experienced and highly qualified technical team, composed of agronomists and zootechnicians, who are fully up-to-date with the latest trends in Brazilian crop fertilization. This team works in close association with important researchers in the field of soil fertility and plant nutrition, in order to ensure that they are always aware of the latest techniques and parameters regarding proper crop nutrition and fertilization.
