CERES Consulting Agronomic®

CERES, in Roman mythology, also called Demeter in Greek mythology, was the goddess of cultivated land, harvest and seasons. She’s the propitiator of wheat, symbol of civilization. And as the agriculture’s goddess, CERES made several long trips teaching men how to take care of the land and plantations.

It was the goddess of growing plants (particularly cereals) and motherly love, always depicted in art with a scepter (real wand), a basket of flowers and fruits and it has a crown made of wheat. The name Ceres derives from the root "ker", an Indo-European source that means "grow", that is also the root of the words "create" and "increase".

CERES Consultoria Agronômica® with the same spirit to grow, create and increase takes knowledge to the farmers, to turn the land fertile and to sprout the most several cultures.
