Rovensa Group, a global leader of agricultural inputs for sustainable agriculture, announces the acquisition of Agro-K, a leading family-owned biostimulants developer in the United States. Agro-K will be integrated over time into Rovensa Next, the business unit dedicated to biosolutions for agriculture.

Established in 1976 in Minneapolis, Agro-K has been at the forefront of sustainable agriculture through science-based development of an extensive portfolio of biostimulants and specialty nutrition products. The acquisition solidifies Rovensa Next's foothold in the United States, a key strategic growth market, and it brings a high-quality portfolio of complementary solutions and a technical sales team fully dedicated to biostimulation. As the largest biosolutions market globally and the fastest growing biostimulants region, the US plays a crucial role in Rovensa Next's ambitious expansion strategy,

Javier Calleja, Rovensa´s CEO, stated: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Agro-K into Rovensa. This acquisition is an important strategic step towards achieving our ambition of becoming the leading biosolutions player in the United States, marketing a full spectrum of solutions nationwide. Both businesses are highly complementary and share a common go-to-market approach, the vision of an increasingly sustainable agriculture and the concern for people and society at large, which will contribute towards a swift integration and a successful joint value creation journey.” 

Chapman Mayo, Agro-K’s President, added: “We are very excited about the possibilities that an integration with Rovensa brings to the US marketplace. We strongly believe that the new products, technologies, R&D capabilities, and the global expertise that Rovensa brings will allow Agro-K to better service its customer base and ensure that Agro-K consolidates its position in the biosolutions arena”. 

Rovensa was advised by Current Capital Partners, Honigman LLP, Uria Menendez, PwC, Context Network, Bracewell LLP and ERM.
