Timac Agro has established a unique sales concept, supported by technical sales representatives who provide expert advice to farmers. As a specialist for plant nutrition, the focus is on the appropriate fertilization, adapted to the actual needs of different cultures, both in the conventional and in the biological field and on the maintenance of a healthy soil.
As a specialist in the field of animal nutrition, the emphasis is on a balanced supply of nutrients and trace elements, adapted to different performance phases and husbandry. Timac Agro’s long-term economic success is borne by the innovative power of the research facilities of the Roullier Group and the specialized technical sales representatives.
