Agro-resources


Naturally supportive of sustainable development, the Grap’Sud group recovers the co-products from its industrial processes for various agricultural uses within a circular economy approach.

These productions, which were traditionally reserved for the member co-operatives who wanted to see the organic matter returned to their soil, have since been developed and structured to be used in wider applications.

Grape pulp

Available in dried or moist form, the pulps come from grape marc treated solely by physical processes.­ After the­ distillation phase, the spent marc is washed ­- and may be dried - ­then sorted in order to withdraw the pulp, which is then crushed.

Depending on the applications, the pulp can be delivered moist for rapid use, or dried in order to be able to store it­ while at the same time preserving its natural qualities.­ The high content in organic matter is of interest to various industries.

Applications

  • Production of organic fertilisers
  • Fibre for animal feed
  • Carrier for animal feed
  • Possible use as biofuel.

Packaging

  • 800 - 900 kg Big Bag
  • 25 tonnes in semi-trailer

Composted organic amendments

Developed in an approach of return of organic matter to the earth, these natural inputs are composted for a minimum period of 6 months.­ They are mainly intended for environmentally-friendly agriculture and come in the form of a stable and homogeneous pulverulent mixture.

Depending on the matters used, we differentiate two products with distinct analytical profiles :

  • Generic organic amendment (NFU 44-095)­: standard product, with a relative N-P-K balance that makes it suitable for many crops.
  • Superior organic amendment (NFU 44-051)­: a relatively rich product (particularly in K), especially intended for vine-growing (usable in Organic Agriculture in accordance with Regulations EC n° 834/2207 and n° 889/2008).

Applications

  • Re-integration of organic matter into exhausted agricultural soils­
  • Improvement of the structure and chemical balance of soils
  • Balancing of the organic matter content for ornamental plants.

Packaging

  • 25 tonnes in semi-trailer

Liquid organic potassium fertiliser

This organic potassium fertiliser has been developed from the co-products of distillation of winemaking matters by physical processes of filtration and concentration. ­This natural fertiliser, which is rich in organic plant matter and in nutrients, provides a sustainable alternative to mineral inputs with a concentrated potash content, especially suitable for vine growing.

Intended for environmentally-friendly agriculture, this natural fertiliser complies with the characteristics of the AFNOR NF42001/A11 standard and may be used in Organic Agriculture in accordance with Regulations EC n°834/2007 and n° 889/2008.

Applications

  • Supply of basic chemical elements, directly usable and absorbable
  • Supply of nutritional elements for crops of different kinds
  • Application in combination with Grap’Sud organic amendment

Packaging

  • 25 tonne tank
