Buenos Aires, Argentina, October 11, 2023 – Leading global merchant and processor of agricultural goods, Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC), and Koppert Argentina, a leader in the market of biological solutions for agricultural purposes, announced today a partnership to incorporate Koppert’s biological solutions into LDC’s inputs portfolio, thereby supporting more sustainable farming practices in Argentina.
“Through this partnership, Koppert Argentina will benefit from LDC’s extensive commercial and agricultural networks in the country, which will allow us to continue approaching all producers who decide to incorporate biological solutions in their production plans, promoting crop health and fostering ecological balance,” said Fabián Díaz, General Manager of Koppert for Argentina and Uruguay.
“Koppert’s biodefensive products further expand our diversified portfolio of innovative and sustainable agricultural solutions, in line with our commitment to creating fair and sustainable value in our supply chains, for the benefit of current and future generations,” said Bernabé Santos, LDC’s Head of Fertilizers & Inputs for South & West Latin America.
Biological products allow sustainable crop management, combining solutions for health, integrated pest management, nutrition and biostimulation, helping to preserve the environment.
The two companies formed a similar partnership in Brazil in 2022, which now is extended to Argentina, capitalizing on favorable market conditions in the local agricultural sector, where they agree that the producer is more open to incorporating biological products into their crop protection strategy, while meeting the growing global demand for more environmentally friendly products.
