Our History

ADAMA celebrates its more than 75-year heritage, having started from two Israeli crop protection companies, Agan (1945) and Makhteshim (1952), which merged in 1997 to form Makhteshim Agan. In 2011, we became part of the ChemChina Group (the China National Chemical Corporation), which started a new and exciting chapter in our story. In 2014, we introduced our new global brand and became known as ADAMA. In 2017, with our landmark combination with Sanonda, we returned to the public markets. Today, ADAMA is a member of the Syngenta Group, the world’s largest agricultural inputs company.
