Our promise to our customers and stakeholders is simple. Talk to us and we will truly listen, learn about the challenges you face, and deliver what you need to succeed.

Our Story

Our company's story begins with four young entrepreneurs whose passion for chemistry drove them to launch two Israeli crop protection companies, Agan (1945) and Makhteshim (1952). Both companies played vital roles in shaping Israel’s ground-breaking chemical and agricultural industries and together they became an international powerhouse when they merged in 1997 to create Makhteshim Agan. With the launch of our global brand in 2014, the company became known as ADAMA.

Today, ADAMA is a member of the Syngenta Group, the world’s largest agricultural inputs company.
