Fertilizer Residual Materials (FRMs)

A reliable and economical agronomic solution: here’s a win-win option for field crop producers: use fertilizing materials generated by municipalities and industries like pulp and paper. A recognized reliable, safe and economical solution.

Viridis provides quality fertilizing organic amendments or liming materials, some of which are BNQ certified or accepted for organic farming. Viridis looks after transporting the materials, and can do the spreading, as required. Farmers are assured of a professional turnkey service: the Viridis team includes agronomists and agricultural technicians who are experts in FRM agricultural recycling and oversee the entire process for optimal fertilization.

FRM treatment and conditioning

Whether stored in fields or in pits, FRMs sometimes need to be treated or covered to control odours, protect them from the rain, contain runoff or improve their physical or agronomic qualities. Viridis’ FRM management services include liming, the addition of odour masking or neutralizing products, covering in fields or pits (capsules, tarps, straw…), and any other treatment or conditioning needed to properly manage such materials.

We are also always looking to develop new products and markets! Viridis can lend its expertise to exploring new opportunities, such as mixing, drying, granulating and packaging materials, using materials as bedding for animals, etc.
