In 2013, SLC Agrícola started the production of certified soybean seeds for their own cultivation. In 2018, with the licensing of the Brasmax and Monsoy brands in addition to the Roundup Ready® and Intacta RR2PRO® technologies, SLC Agrícola began to commercialize part of this production, and as a result of this SLC Sementes was born. SLC Sementes counts on all the support, technology and expertise of the research areas of SLC Agrícola, which is present on 13 farms. These, in turn, evaluate and select the best cultivars according to the productive potential, the cycle, the agronomic characteristics and biotechnologies necessary to obtain the best results for each crop and those appropriate to each region.Access the site
The soybean crop is crucial in the production system in the Cerrado region, not only for profit, but because it allows for the cultivation of a 2nd harvest for cotton, corn, sunflower and sorghum. When planning for fertilizers and pesticides the best cost/benefit for soy production is considered. The choice of cultivars is performed according to the productive potential, cycle, agronomic characteristics and biotechnologies necessary to obtain the best results in each plantation. The research data provides this information for each of our farms.
Soybean cultivation promotes a sustainable production environment, mainly by enabling direct seeding in husks without soil disturbance, contributing to the soil conservation practices. Planting is done with the use of high-tech machines, during the most appropriate time for each growing region. The use of cultivars adapted to each region reduces the use of pesticides and maximizes productivity. The Integrated Monitoring of Pests and Diseases (MIP/MID) allows to direct efforts and implement the management strategies rationally.
