1963: the production of organic fertilizers starts in Roverchiara in the province of Verona, deriving exclusively from the powder version of humified manure, successfully utilized in agriculture, hobby industries and in the compost sector.

1986: the plant was fitted with a system for the demolition of airs and odours, unique of its kind in Italy for this type of application.
1988: the production of organic-mineral fertilizers begins, by uniting the organic matrix from manure together with the chemical-mineral matrixes (sulphur, ferrous sulphate, magnesium sulphate, potassium sulphate and others).
1992: the built-up area of the plant is expanded from 13000 sq.mt. to 20600 sq.mt.

2007: new wastewater treatment plant.
2009: new processing method for manure in compliance with EC Regulation 1774/02.
2010: new plants: automatic tubular packaging machine and new exclusive system to protect pallets from rain and wind. The ‘bandage’ is replaced with a single ‘hood’: the nylon film is always transparent and moisture retention is avoided.
2011: plant expansion with a new warehouse of 5000 square metres used for raw materials. Installation robot for pallets (the first anthropomorphous robot used in a fertilizer industry in Italy). New laboratory for analysis products and raw materials, responsible laboratory doc. Alberto Modena. New meeting room for visitors and customers.

OUR
MISSION

 

Fomet Spa has manufactured and merchandized special and natural fertilizers for professional agriculture since 1973; it must be remembered, however, that the first experimental tests were started in 1969. The philosophy of processing and developing its own products has always been the application of natural methods and systems in an industrial context.
Methods which today still foresee the controlled withdrawal of organic matrixes from manure, the processing of same with a multi-month monitored dessication-concentration-humification treatment in environments completely covered and stanched, with the consequential formulation of multiple fertilizing products suitable to satisfy the most varied and difficult needs of the land.

Above approach, which is continually pursued, has offered the possibility of considering the proposal of its own fertilizers as a pure and simple contribution of nutritional units (on the other hand a fundamental aspect for a regular growth and production of crops), without neglecting a more extensive and equally fundamental point with respect to ground fertility. Over the years, therefore, the concept has been amplified and extended in the use of new organic matrixes and manure, maintaining, however, the same guarantee of authenticity.




Indeed Fomet Spa intends to realize products which give a biological activity to the soil, together with humic components, thereby contrasting the ever-increasing productive decline of soils, their progressive destructuration, together with their growing difficulty in production.

Therefore the entire product range includes the most qualified choice between organic, organic-mineral and remedial fertilizers, for conventional, integrated and biological agriculture. Likewise, one may also choose between powder-flake, pelleted, granular and liquid products.

In particular, the optimal use of these products permits the following:

  • Gradual release of nutritional elements (N, P, K, Mg, trace elements) thereby avoiding sudden imbalances and guaranteeing a constant growth of the vegetative structure.
  • Possibility of fertilizing also during Autumn, without losing nutritional elements due to rain-wash.
  • Intervention also with respect to physical fertility of soil (due to products containing organic matrixes); above certainly has a positive effect for a better assimilation of trace elements.

Over the years, Fomet Spa has acquired a consolidated technical experience of support with respect to the use of its fertilizers; it organizes meetings for bothdiffusion and demonstration purposes, together with guided visits c/o its plants. It collaborates with various research institutes for the development of its own products. Training is carried out through schools and groups of technicians.

 

 

THE FOUNDER

CAPPELLARI PAOLO

 

Cappellari Paolo was born in 1925, he started Fomet Spa in 1973.

At first, Fomet has arisen as suppliers of services and products, from 1981 onwards Fomet started its own business. Even today thanks to the support of modern and updated production/packaging machines, 20% of its turnover is derived by the supply of subcontracting products and services. Just consider that the main plant, in San Pietro di Morubio (VR), is the most important in Italy for the production of organic, corrective and special fertilizers.

President and CEO of a group of companies that includes property and leading of farmlands, herds, buildings, Paolo Cappellari has always kept constantly his interest for the primary sector to whom he
has devoted much of his industriousness and inventiveness.
