Home Research & Development

CEMAP (Pasture, Management and Fertilization Center) was founded in 2003 with the aim of delivering practical and objective technologies to growers, specialists, researchers and students throughout Brazil.

The Center develops practical projects on the use of fertilizers in pasture (nutrient sources and dosage, for example) and the respective economic results. It also undertakes research into pasture management practices in order to increase the efficiency of forage crops by improving yield and boosting returns.

Around 6.0 ha are allocated to fertilizer experiments and 12.5 ha to intensive production, where the Center studies system management and evaluates livestock weight gain.

CEMAP disseminates its findings though more than 80 lectures a year, which are attended by more than 2,000 people throughout Brazil. It also receives visitors and gives on-site training courses and lectures to farmers, rural extension specialists and undergraduate and graduate students. It is also used for third-party events and undertakes projects in association with universities, which are important for the developing of beef cattle breeding.

In order to be economically successful in beef and dairy cattle operations, it is essential to make use of the right technology, such as pasture intensification through fertilizer use and the rational management of forage crops.

Cattle production in intensive pasture increases system productivity, reducing costs and improving the efficiency of soil use, in turn reducing the need for exploring new areas and preserving the environment.

In order to ensure the success of such technologies, however, specialized knowledge is essential. Fertilizantes Heringer S/A believes that the improvement and exercise of knowledge are key factors in the sustainable development of any agricultural activity.

This is why the Company founded CEMAP - to create and disseminate knowledge of pasture production.

CEMAP is therefore open to all Brazilian professionals associated with livestock production, so that they can jointly seek solutions that contribute to the growth of cattle raising and, therefore, of Brazil itself.
