“We are encouraged by our continued exponential growth. The first quarter of a calendar year is naturally its weakest for fertilizer demand because of the climate seasonality in the agricultural cycle. Most of our sales are expected to take place between June and September, period which therefore has a greater impact on Q2 and Q3 financial results. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, we are on track to reach our 2020 growth target of 76%”, said Cristiano Veloso, Verde’s founder, President and CEO.
