KPfertil was soft launched last year while Harvest waits for remineralizer certification

Harvest Minerals Limited (LON:HMI) is stepping up operations at its Arapua fertilizer project in Brazil with the addition of a new plant and expansion of the sales and marketing team.

KPfertil was soft launched last year while Harvest waits for the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture Livestock and Supply to certify the product as a remineralizer.

The application is now anticipated to be processed early this quarter, having been.delayed by an extended Chirstmas break in Brazil.

Four additional knife mills meanwhile will be added to boost annual production capacity to over 320,000 tonnes and create a single production line.

Brian McMaster, Harvest’s chairman, said: “The fully funded plant expansion, which should be commissioned in the coming few months, will allow us to meet expected demand for KPfertil.”
