Nexco, exclusive AZOMITE distributor to Brazil, has an exclusive partnership with Massam LLC, the sole distributor of AZOMITE throughout Latin America, Canada and the Caribbean. The partners will be presented to the Brazilian market during the International Fish Congress in Foz do Iguaçu, PR. AZOMITE is a natural additive mined in Utah, USA. With a broad spectrum of over 70 metabolically active minerals, Azomite is used in aquaculture feeds for mineral supplementation and as a pond water treatment to stimulate plankton and algae growth. Studies of shrimp and tilapia supplemented with AZOMITE show marked improvement in animal health and growth rate.
|Preliminary results in bananas at the Hacienda Don Alejo – April 16
ECUADORDon Victor Espinoza (not pictured), the banana plantation owner, met us at the Cumbre Banana Expo in Guayquil and invited us to visit his plantation, where the results with AZOMITE were phenomenal. Hacienda Don Alejo http://haciendadonalejo.com/es/index.htm
Ing. Agr. Michael Zea (on the left) of FertiGreen (a division of Probac SA – Ecuador distributors), is overseeing the trials.
Ing. Agr. Edison Sarango (on the right), head of production, expressed delight at the results of AZOMITE on the bananas– earlier, more robust shoots (10 times more rhizomes), uniformity of growth, less sigatoka negra, and the expectation of a 30 – 50% increase in production. In his many years working with bananas, he said he has never seen plants respond like this. Ing. Agr. Holger Mendoza, the plant nutritionist who prescribed a soil nutrition plan including AZOMITE, was likewise thrilled at the prospects of a record setting yield at this farm. The separation of the banana hands was another noticeable improvement – they expect a significantly larger and earlier harvest, both of which translate to a direct cost benefit for the grower. Representatives from Dole visited the plantation to view the plant quality and expected production gains.

Ing Agr. Michael Zea (a la izquierda) de FertiGreen (una división de Probac SA – Distribuidores de Ecuador), está supervisando los ensayos. .Ing. Agr. Edison Sarango (a la derecha), jefe de producción, expresó su satisfacción por los resultados de AZOMITE en los bananos: brotes más tempranos y robustos (10 veces más rizomas), uniformidad de crecimiento, menos sigatoka negra y la expectativa de un aumento de 30 a 50% en la producción. En los muchos años trabajando con bananas, dijo que nunca había visto que las plantas respondieran así. Ing.. Agr. Holger Mendoza, el nutricionista quien prescribió el plan de nutrición del suelo que incluye AZOMITE, también se mostró emocionado ante la perspectiva de un rendimiento récord en esta granja. La separación de las manos de banano fue otra mejora notable: esperan una cosecha mucho más grande y más temprana, lo que se traduce en un beneficio de costo directo para el productor. Los representantes de Dole visitaron la plantación para ver la calidad de la planta y las ganancias de producción esperadas.

Expofruit in Mossoro Brazil – Nexco our distributor showed the benefits of using AZOMITE in the melon and fruit growing region. We’ve had great success and happy clients in the region. Higher germination rates and 100% survival in transplant from trays filled with coco fiber infused with AZOMITE to field.
GALES AGRO PRODUCTS BECOMES AZOMITE SUPPLIER
Gale’s Agro Products Ltd. has been the premier poultry supplier to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean since 1979. We are honored to have them carry AZOMITE® Mineral Products to nourish feed and soil — and are even more honored they use our product in-house.
In 2016, according to figures from ITC (International Trade Centre), Ecuador exported US$ 2.7 billion worth or equivalent of 6.2 million tonnes of bananas to the global market. Ecuador tops the list as the world’s largest banana exporter. We were delighted to discuss the benefits of AZOMITE at several farms, including one of MarPlantis’ many organic farms growing bananas, cocoa, annato among other organic crops.
One of the largest melon growers in the Mossoro region has been testing AZOMITE on their farm. Initial tests including AZOMITE in their coco fiber substrate yielded significantly improved germination rates, stronger seedlings with 100% survival in transplant, better root development, and larger plants post transplant in the fields. We were delighted to be given a tour of their facilities and to have reviewed the research conducted at the trial.
Thank you to the wonderful partnership between NEXCO, Vaccinar and Massam LLC – Vaccinar sponsored several informative presentations to layer operations in Bastos “Capital do Ovo” (The Egg Capital) and Santa Maria de Jetiba. Combined, the groups represent over 25 million layers.
Although the focus was on egg shell strength “Qualidade em Casca de Ovo Foco em Nutrição Mineral Ultra -Traço“, the group presented the myriad other benefits trace elements bring in egg production quality, quantity, FCR and immune system support. Building on the successes from the August 2017 Symposium, we are pleased that 100% of the coop members of COAG (Cooperativa Agrícola de Guatapará) are using AZOMITE in their layer diets.
