Your partner in agronomic experimentation

History And Key Figures

Since 1995, the company has experienced increasing success in all of its sectors of activity, with a regular increase in the volume of trials, and increasingly numerous clients. The turnover has strongly increased since the creation of the company and it stands at over 8.15 M Euros in 2015.

Far from being a chance occurrence, this progression is the result of a strong strategy adapted to the demands of the market's professionals: large-scale equipment and maintenance investments, a flexible organization, competent personnel and, most importantly, in the field assistance.
