ADAMA, a leading global crop protection company, has announced opening of a new multi-purpose plant (MPP) in Taquari, Brazil. The MPP will produce vital active ingredients (AIs) for the crop protection industry, including Prothioconazole, a necessary fungicide for soybean crops. In addition, this new plant is expected to improve ADAMA’s ability to supply Prothioconazole-based products using in-house capabilities and support the launch of several new products to the Brazilian market within the next five years.
The investment of over $50 million in this new plant is a strategic move for ADAMA, positioning the company as one of the top global producers and leading suppliers of Prothioconazole. In addition, the in-house production of this critical AI provides ADAMA a competitive advantage in Brazil, one of its most important markets. It reduces the company’s dependence on external suppliers.
One of the most significant features of the new ADAMA plant is its commitment to sustainability. With 30% of the investment spent on implementing sustainable practices in its production facilities, the company demonstrates its commitment to environmental responsibility. This approach aligns with ADAMA’s overall vision of producing high-quality crop protection products while minimizing the environmental impact of its operations.
ADAMA Brazil has launched several leading products recently, including Armero™, Araddo®, and Arremate®, which have been well-received in the market. The new multi-purpose plant is expected to bolster further ADAMA’s reputation as a reliable and innovative partner for farmers while also increasing its ability to meet the growing demand for high-quality crop protection products.
