We introduce the Argentinian alfalfa to the world.
Argentina is much more than a soy, wheat and corn exporter country: it is among the main alfalfa producers in the world and has over 4 million cultivated hectares.
The cultural and strategic importance this crop has favors producers’ access to constant improvement and state-of-the-art technologies.
The alfalfa hay is the primary forage in Argentina due to the high protein and energy value it provides for cattle feeding. Our country is among the few that can increase its crop area capacity in the short term. This means that through the implementation of industrial processes that consider artificial dehydration, the production volume can increase and offer very superior, internationally competitive hay.
We wish to be protagonists of forage-bale export at a global level, and position ourselves as reference for our quality and consistency.
The country has a large history in alfalfa production. The crop had already been largely spread throughout our territory by the 19th century, which favored specialization among local producers.
Today, with over 4 million sown hectares, alfalfa ranks third among most important crops in Argentina, and rules the forages’ kind. It is present through diverse spots of the country and is the feeding basis for milk and meat production cattle.
In order to create the export product which carries our signature alfalfa, agronomist engineers at MAA work together with local alfalfa growers under the company’s Agriculture Protocole and Traceability Program.
This guarantees a consistent and reliable supply of a certified product on each harvest. At MAA, we affirm the importance of cultivating and strengthening the relationship between our producers and our clients around the world.
