Dairy and beef producers and forage crop farmers who are aiming to maximize their production, have a new ally!
VERDE Vital® dry are balanced formulas that provide a complete and specific nutrition program for pastures, all kinds of grasses, fodder crops and legumes.
It’s NPK-S-Mg ratio increases the response of crops under irrigation systems or with an adequate rainfall season. Results are achieved in short time and with lasting benefits thanks to multicote® –a controlled release nitrogen fertilizer based on a polymer coated urea. Unlike conventional fertilizers, VERDE Vital® dry was designed to meet the most common nutrient deficiencies in forage species and grasslands, and at the same time, optimize forage quality and yield.
Designed to be applied by broadcasting or band placement into the soil to enhance the yield and quality of forage production in all kinds of pastures, grasses, fodder crops and legumes, VERDE Vital® dry three formulas allows you to choose the most suitable fertilizer considering what kind of forage crop is cultivated; what yield is expected and if it's going to be grazed or harvested.
All three VERDE Vital® dry formulas are powered by multicote® which is a controlled release nitrogen fertilizer with a polymer coating that allows a continuous release of this nutrient and avoids lixiviation. A single application of multicote® is responsible for the nitrogen nutrition of the plant for several months, depending on multicote® grade and soil temperature.
Why is it better
Premium materials, nutritional balance, applied technology, powered by multicote® , specific formulas for either grasslands or for forage crops, and a third formula for N-Fe reinforcement, all add up to deliver a solid field performer! Fertilization programs based on VERDE Vital® dry produce more biomass and have better protein and minerals content that those untreated and therefore, will promote better weight gains or milk production.

On intensive fertilization programs you can apply up to 150 lb/acre per month or after each cut according to your cutting management schedule.
VERDE Vital® Nitro.
