San Isidro Labrador

This Saturday, May 15, we celebrate the feast of San Isidro Labrador. He is the patron of farmers and of many peoples with an agricultural tradition. Isidro Merlo and Quintana was his real name, he was a farmer and a very devout person, who every morning visited several churches in Madrid before going to the lands that he worked for his lord, Iván de Vargas.

Defeder, as a manufacturer of 100% organic fertilizers, celebrates and commemorates the day of San Isidro Labrador, giving thanks to the great work of all farmers so that in all homes we can obtain healthy and quality food.

Organic farming is a type of agriculture that is the future, but it is also the present. Defeder promotes the strategy of the circular economy as well as a 100% ecological product. Ecological agriculture is the obtaining of healthy food, of higher nutritional quality, without the presence of chemical synthesis substances, obtained through sustainable procedures. It is a production model that contemplates a global production management system, which increases and enhances the health of ecosystems, cycles and the biological activity of the soil. This is achieved by applying, whenever possible, agronomic, biological and mechanical methods.

Our country meets the conditions for the development of this type of agriculture due to its favorable climate and extensive production systems that are applied to a large number of crops. The care of the stock of seeds of autochthonous species is absolutely compatible with the development of the latest genetic improvement techniques, in order to optimize the productive capacities of intensive crops.

More and more organic products from the earth are being consumed. Defeder fertilizers help fruit and vegetable crops reach more consumers.

Defeder is committed to national and high quality product. Long live San Isidro Labrador!

and Long live the farmers!
