Fertilizer is a technical material, thus, to use it effectively, the user must understand it. To make profits from agricultural products, farmers require some scientific knowledge about them. To promote this awareness, the company tries to improve farmers’ knowledge of soil, fertilizer and plants physiologies.
We are convinced that whenever farmers use intensive farming products effectively, the company completes its responsibilities. Thus we always take care in serving the customer before, during, and after sales. Before bringing products to new markets, we organize training schedules for farmers in agriculture technical, fertilizer usage and insecticides. We always consult customers to choose the most suitable products for each kind of plant in each bio-region. Also, we regularly follow up and consult with farmers after training.
