As many might confirm, Commodity Classic is one of those not-to-be missed events for the agricultural industry. For us, it was therefore a strategic place to launch our products for commodity crops in the United States.
We’ve spent some good time at Commodity Classic talking “in person” (at last!) with customers, farmers and media, and sharing our vision of Biologicals.
A year after the acquisition, it’s also been an excellent opportunity for part of our European and North American teams to spend more time together, exchanges face to face about the products as well as customers’ needs and expectations in the US. This great time spent together as a one team will for sure foster an even better cooperation in the months to come.
LATIN AMERICA: Romeo Sc and Smartfoil under the spotlights in major agricultural shows in Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay and Argentina
In Latin America also, many major shows took place in this first 2022 trimester.
Starting with Show Rural Coopavel which was the first big show we attended since the launch of Romeo Sc in Brazil. Thanks to our partner Ihara, the event has been a success and Romeo Sc received a very good welcome from farmers looking for a solution to protect their soybean crops.

In Bolivia, with our distribution partner Zentta Bio, we attended the Exposoya fair, which took place in the experimental field of the Association of Oilseed and Wheat Producers (ANAPO). A great opportunity to present our biostimulants Smartfoil and FoilMax to farmers looking for solutions to secure their yields.

In Uruguay, with our distribution partner CPY Agronegocios we attended Expoactiva, the biggest agroindustrial fair of Uruguay. Smartfoil being the leading biostimulant product in the market, it was also the opportunity to present CPY Agronegocios with an award for the excellent work they carried out in collaboration with Agrauxine LATAM.

Lastly, via our distributor partner ALZ AGRO, our biostimulant Smartfoil and its assets have been exhibited for the first time to the soya farmers in Expoagro, the most important open-air agroindustrial exhibition in Argentina.
FRANCE : A great showcase for our biosolutions with the much expected comeback of SIVAL in Angers
In France, March signed the comeback of the SIVAL, a key plant production trade show which happens to take place in Angers, not far from our headquarters of Beaucouzé.
This year, Agrauxine by Lesaffre had a booth within the Biocontrol Village set up by IBMA France, which gave us a huge visibility.
Our teams were on the deck during 3 days, both on the booth welcoming visitors, exchanging about their issues and answering the questions they had about our products, and in different conferences where they shared their expertise.

Apart from this major agricultural event, Agrauxine by Lesaffre also attended with our local distributor Terres du Sud an event dedicated to plums and prune which took place in Villeneuve-sur-Lot. A great place to present our biocontrol solution Julietta to arborists.

Thanks a lot to all our teams for their expertise but also for the passion and commitment they put into their work. It contributes greatly to making Agrauxine by Lesaffre a major industrial and technical player in the field of biosolutions.
