FERTIPRADO was founded in 1990, based on the technical knowledge and philosophy of the agronomist David Crespo who studied livestock systems, based on pasture and forage, as a solution to the sustainability of crop-livestock systems.

The development of a crop-livestock project based on this philosophy on the farm “Herdade dos Esquerdos”, owned by the Crespo family, allowed the validation of these concepts and the adaptation of usage and handling techniques, bringing about the creation of the FERTIPRADO company as a way to share and disseminate the techniques that had been developed.
