History

Adubos Araguaia, which was set up over 25 years ago in the heart of Brazil, has grown and become established as one of the largest and most respected fertilizer mixers in the Midwest.

This name was chosen both because it was easy to remember and to honor the Araguaia River, one of the most beautiful natural resources in the State of Goiás.
 
Our plant boasts of a well-planned, complete structure comprised of three factories with a production capacity of more than one million tons of fertilizer per year, in only one shift, and also a chain of stores with full infrastructure. The location of the production units were strategically chosen based on an analysis of the potential of each region, in order to respond to growth in demand.  
 
Adubos Araguaia prides itself on the quality and high standard of its products and technical staff geared towards furthering the development of smart, environmentally sound and practical means for increasing soil fertility.
