Join us on a journey through Adama.
You’ll be able to learn about our heritage, purpose, values, promise and principles, and how they form the basis of our strategy moving forward and our commitment to putting farmers first.
At our modest start nearly seven decades ago, we helped farmers turn the desert green in a sustainable way.
Two sister companies, Makhteshim and Agan, embarked on a journey to turn a knowledge of chemistry and agrochemistry into solutions that could help feed the growing population of Israel, in spite of a shortage of natural resources.
Our local success evolved into a vision to provide high quality, uncompromisingly effective crop protection products to farmers the world over.
With each decade, we extended our capabilities and grew into a global company.
Adama preserves open communication with members of the media.

Farmers deal with complex issues in their daily work.
Adama’s goal is to create simplicity for growers across the full farming value-chain through our portfolio of crop protection solutions.
With over 70 years of agronomic expertise in local and global markets, Adama’s unique mixtures, formulations and advanced solutions are specifically designed to help growers meet their daily challenges.
Farmers need practical solutions.
Innovation is woven into every aspect of our business. We define innovation as culture and work processes to nurture new ideas, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit, translated into economic value.
At Adama we dare to think differently, putting the farmers’ problems in the center of our thinking.
Advanced packaging, training seminars and digital tools illustrate our commitment to redefining the boundaries of crop protection.
Our future is tied to the communities in which we operate and the life of growers worldwide.
Contributing time, ideas and resources brings our employees closer to each other and the world we live in.
We aim to conduct our business with the highest standards of integrity, fairness, reliability, transparence and responsibility - values that we believe are crucial to our long term success.
These values are reflected in our Corporate Governance policy, which sets the standard for all of Adama’s activities globally.
Simply Grow Together is also a manifesto for our thousands-strong global employee base.
At Adama, our employees are our most important asset and the driving force behind our success. Our environment demands excellence, promotes growth, and offers a wide range of professional development opportunities. Just ask anyone who works here.
Over 4,500 professionals work at Adama, in over 120 countries. We firmly believe in the value of diversity and are looking for talented people from a broad range of backgrounds and outlooks.
Chen Lichtenstein came full circle after decades of study and work on multiple continents, by returning to Israel and joining Adama in 2006. He held various executive roles in the company until he was appointed CEO in 2014.
“2014 will be an important year for our organization as we roll out our new global brand, and increase the integration of our business with ChemChina. I look forward to working closely with Adama’s excellent management team and professional and determined employees building on our strong foundation to make the most of the exciting opportunities we have.”
Air, water and the ground in which we plant are all important factors in the health of global humanity, as well as the crops farmers grow.
We continually invest in reducing our ecological footprint anywhere we can. We measure our environmental impact – use of natural resources, energy consumption and emissions of air pollutants -- in an effort to track and reduce them.
