About us

Agrichem S.A. was founded in 1976 when it started to import high quality innovative products almost entirely from the United States, coinciding with the incipient modernisation of Spanish Agriculture. In the late ’70s, Agrichem offered to the growers the first humic acids and chelated fertilisers, as well as other raw materials unknown at that time in Europe. Until the mid ’80s, these were sold through commercial structures of multinational distribution companies. Soon after, during the second half of that decade, Agrichem consolidated its own sales network and started introducing the first biopesticides, several Bacillus thuringiensis formulations, into the Spanish market. In the ’90s, Agrichem was renamed commercially AgrichemBio and not without difficulties, started to market the first bumblebee hives for pollination and biological control agents in the horticultural greenhouse production areas of the Iberian Southeast. In the latest years, Agrichem is spreading its business area to other countries, setting up a sales network in Portugal.

During its more than 40 years of history, AgrichemBio, has always been characterised by introducing innovative products into Spanish agriculture. In this way, the company has been able to offer new solutions, previously unknown in our country, contributing to the modernisation and technological capability of Spanish agriculture.
Following this line of work, AgrichemBio currently focuses on the testing, development, registration and commercialisation of biopesticides, speciality fertilisers and biostimulants, providing technical advice for their appropriate use throughout the territory.

What we offer

Today, we are proud to offer one of the largest assortments of registered biopesticides, suitable for organic and zero-residue farming. Alongside with a full range of nutritional products, we offer safe and effective products for healthy crops and healthy food. Today, our goal remains the selection and testing of high quality products from the most reliable international suppliers for their subsequent marketing in Spain and Portugal. For this, we place special emphasis on a careful selection of our products and suppliers, mostly specialised companies in Europe and the United States, which are exclusively committed to the development, formulation and production of a few products. This allows us to offer high quality products, fully traceable, which have been thoroughly tested and evaluated by our R & D technicians to get a maximum performance and efficacy in the diverse growing conditions of the Iberian Peninsula.

Bioinnovation for IPM

Bioinnovation for IPM    

AgrichemBio´s plant protection products are precisely aimed at offering biological and natural solutions for IPM, in order to minimise the use of synthetic control measures at the same time as maintaining and often even increasing the production capability of crops in both quantitative and qualitative terms. All our products are backed up by a full registration dossier that includes numerous laboratory tests and field trials, ensuring in all cases that their correct use is safe for the user, the end consumer and the environment.

Listed below are the main features and benefits when using AgrichemBio products:

 

  • Proven efficacy supported by exhaustive dossiers.
  • Suitable for organic agriculture and a crucial tool for IPM.
  • They are safe for the applicator and the environment.
  • Absence or a very short harvest interval.
  • Fast degradation and in most cases virtually no residues.
  • From natural or biological origin.
  • Compatible with the use of beneficial insects.
  • Unlike many systemic products, they do not have adverse effects on crop growth.
  • Not susceptible to generate resistance of pathogens.
  • Multiple mode of actions.

 

AgrichemBio´s nutritional products contribute to a balanced plant nutrition that maximises the productivity of crops proving effective solutions in cases of poor crop development caused by abiotic stress such as drought, salinity, extreme temperatures or nutritional imbalances.

Efficacy

Efficacy    

In addition to the offer of innovative products, AgrichemBio has put a lot of effort into the development of effective products that have undergone a detailed process of agronomic trials both by our suppliers as well as by our own R & D technicians. These trials enable us to know exactly how to use our products in the diverse growing conditions of the Iberian Peninsula. Thus, we reduce the inherent variability of some active substances from biological origin, maximising their performance and efficacy. The in depth knowledge gained during the field trials allows us, for example, to establish the optimal treatment timings and frequencies, decide on the most appropriate application equipment, set thresholds and gain our own know-how on the integration of AgrichemBio´s biopesticide range with other control strategies in order to obtain the best possible results.

Food security

Food security    

Aware of the importance that currently represents food security for the consumer and very much in line with the European directive 2009/128 on the sustainable use of pesticides, AgrichemBio only offers products that have previously been subjected to an exhaustive control. All of them are backed up by a full registration dossier that includes numerous laboratory tests and field trials, ensuring in all cases that their correct use is safe for the user, the consumer and the environment.

In this sense, the plant protection products included in our catalogue have a zero or a very short harvest interval, no residues or rapidly degrading ones and a re-entry period of less than 24 hours. All of them are suitable for use in organic farming according to the annex II of the EU Regulation 889/2008.

Technical advice

Technical advice    

Customer satisfaction is paramount for AgrichemBio and therefore all our technical sales staff provide direct advice bearing in mind, not only the use of our products, but also the integration with other control measures in order to maximise the production both in qualitative and in quantitative terms. The correct application of biopesticides depends on the intrinsic characteristics of the products in addition to numerous external factors that only through experience and an in-depth knowledge can be implemented properly and extrapolated successfully to other cropping situations. All of our technicians have a wide experience in the handling of AgrichemBio´s products and on how to get the best out of them in the different cropping systems of their particular area.
