WHO WE ARE
We support better agriculture in more than 40 countries,
and we continue to expand our presence with our main product lines:
inoculants, seed treatments, biostimulants, adjuvants
and specialty fertilizers.
We reach farmers around the globe with cutting-edge
technologies that allow them to increase yield potential.
We work under a sustainable management system,
with an integrated quality policy certified
under international standards including ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015
We have been a vital part of the agricultural biotechnology since 1977,
committed to conducting our business
and science in an environmentally friendly way,
while caring for people’s health and communities’ development.
We are constantly striving for an effective and sustainable agricultural production system. We lead microbiology research and development programs that offer innovative tools, based on natural biocontrol properties and nutrition provided by selected microorganisms already present in the soil.
Innovation is present in every step we take.
Our history reflects the evolution of our technologies and the commitment
to reach the main agricultural countries with efficient
and sustainable solutions.
The Big Dream Begins
Miguel Harnan takes the first step of a great project: he begins the production of the first inoculants in a garage.
Rizobacter is Born
Rizobacter is born with three founding partners: Miguel Harnan, Ricardo Yapur and Enrique Ripoll.
The first liquid seed treatment is produced, enabling us to expand the product portfolio.
We began our expansion abroad with the first export to Ecuador.
Launch of the Liquid Inoculants
We produced the first liquid inoculants in Argentina and launched the first line of surfactants.
Rizobacter in Brazil
Our first subsidiary is born in Brazil.
We grew by integrating strategic alliances with major international companies, including Syngenta and De Sangosse.
We managed to consolidate our quality with the trinary certification: ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001.
We opened our offices in Paraguay.
Creation of the First Bioinductor Inoculant
We created Signum, the first bioinduction technology on the market.
Launch of LLI (Long Life Inoculant)
We were highly recognized by obtaining the Phelps Medal for Innovation.
We opened our offices in Bolivia.
Rizobacter North America
We opened our head office in the United States to cover the North American market, from Canada to Mexico.
We opened our offices in Uruguay.
The Bioceres Group acquired 51% of the shares, initiating a new cycle in the life of the company.
We opened a head office in France.
Rizobacter is part of NASDAQ-traded Bioceres Crop Solutions.
Merger with Marrone Bio
Bioceres Crop Solutions completes merger with Marrone Bio.
We seek efficiency in each agricultural
practice through the selection of innovative
technologies, with high added value, which
facilitate the applications and all the logistics
of the producer.

We invest 30 per cent of our annual profits into
research and development programs that advance the goal
of better crop growth around the world. We aim to sustain food security, while elevating the
quality of life for people in each and every corner of the world.
To develop high value-added products by using state-of-the-art technology,
with our own resources or through strategic alliances, in order to deliver
products and solutions to the global agricultural market.
To be leaders in research, development, production
and commercialization of agricultural microbiological
products and application technologies.
Our global management
is oriented towards sustainable
development in order to satisfy
present needs, without compromising
By growing with our products,
farmers protect their seeds, nurture plants,
control diseases to increase yields in an environmentally friendly way.
We were pioneers in the formulation of liquid
inoculants used to increase productivity in legume
crops; today, we are proud to operate the most modern
production facility to deliver state-of-the-art formulations.
We have developed inoculants, seed treatments, biostimulants
adjuvants and specialty fertilizers technologies that led us to
become a leading force in global markets.
We continue to undertake research to create new products that respond
to the current and future needs of agricultural production.
Technologies in our portfolio positively impact the triple bottom line of sustainability
management systems for social, economic, and environmental benefits.
Our social impact begins with improved agricultural food security and regional development,
allowing productivity levels to increase in challenging environments. The performance of our
biotechnologies shows that sustainable methods and products are a viable path to economic success.
The circle of sustainability is completed by the role our products play in the decrease of carbon
emissions and increase in carbon capture; by reducing the negative impact of greenhouse gases,
we take on a major challenge on the global agenda.
We specialize in seed-applied biologicals. Before planting, we strengthen seeds with technologies
that prepare them to unfold their maximum potential in the later stages of growth.
For strong emergence of crops, we introduce microgranulated fertilization, which ensures efficient,
precise and balanced nutrition in the planting line.
When it comes to taking care of health, we offer the most complete line of agricultural adjuvants that enhance
effectiveness and precision, with the least environmental impact, during the application of insecticides and foliar fungicides.
The alliances that we maintain, with research centers and leading companies in the market, allow us to come into
the field with cutting-edge solutions from pre-planting to harvest.
Our formulations integrate and improve all the processes of agricultural production in the countries where we are active, reducing
environmental and climatic risks, and maximizing the producer’s return on investment.
