Agri Star is positioned as the leader in the bio-inputs market in Argentina
Sep. 24, 2020
Agri Star is an Argentinian company founded in 2005. From its inception, it has demonstrated significant achievement in the development and distribution of environmentally friendly products, becoming one of the leaders in the field with significant short-term growth.
During the latest 10 years, Agri Star has been working on the incorporation of specialties to position itself within the bio-inputs market. In 2014, the firm began to trade its first own organic insecticide “StarEco”, earning critical distribution and development agreements with foreign companies. This was the beginning of exciting developments in the Agri Star portfolio.
“Signing distribution and development agreements open us to this market and to the interest of many leading bio-input companies looking for the right partner to introduce their products into the region. Agri Star is a pioneer when it comes to bio-crop protection and bio-fertilization, and we are sure that this is the future of the industry.”
“Currently, we have a complete portfolio of our own and third party products to satisfy the organic and low-residue market demand”, said Eng. Ezequiel Nardini, Agri Star Manager, when asked about the importance of obtaining commercial agreements with foreign partners.
Foreign Company Agreements
Along with the development of these bio-inputs, Agri Star has completed agreements with companies from the United States (Certis LLC, Plato Industries Ltd) and Portugal (CEV S.A.) for the exclusive distribution of their products in Argentina. Regarding Plato Industries, the agreement relates to the pheromone system for the control of cotton boll weevil. The agreement with Certis coordinates the distribution of CYD-X LC Carpovirus and Bacillus Thuringesis Ecotech in Argentina. Most recently, the agreement signed with the CEV company in 2019 is for the exclusive distribution of a fungicide based on BLAD Problad Verde.
In recent weeks, Agri Star entered into a technology transfer agreement with a foreign University. The objective of the agreement is not only the manufacture and distribution of a highly effective biological insecticide, but also the patent of the product and the knowledge of the manufacturing process.
All the work done in the recent years is due to the generation of multiple critical international commercial agreements. Currently, there are advanced negotiations with a leading European company to create a joint venture where Agri Star will handle the bio-input products, as well as the national and regional agreements with local companies operating in Argentina and the region.
These milestones solidify Agri Star's position as the leader in bio-inputs in Argentina.
