Agrochemistry
Everything the agrochemical industry needs with certified quality.

Agriculture is one of the oldest productive sectors in the world that today faces great challenges. The increase in population, global trade and concern for the environment and the quality of products by consumers are some of them.

In the Agro Division of Barcelonesa we offer you a wide range of raw materials and specialties for the manufacture of agricultural inputs such as fertilizers, deficiency correctors and fertilisers. We have our own team of experts who can advise you on the most efficient combination of ingredients.

There is no doubt that the demand for a more ecological and environmentally friendly agriculture is a trend. At Barcelonesa we are aware and for this reason, we are incorporating increasingly sustainable products to our portfolio that preserve soil fertility and are environmentally friendly, complying with current regulations.

Raw materials

Nutrients, agronutrients or fertilizers are classified according to the amount used by the plant and the frequency with which its contribution to the crop its necessary. According to this criterion we can distinguish:

These are nutritional elements absorbed by plants in larger quantities.This group includes nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), sulphur (S), calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg). According to their frequency of application in crops, they are divided into primary macroelements (N, P y K) and secondary macroelements (S, Ca y Mg).

These are nutritional elements absorbed by plants in smaller quantities, including iron (Fe), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), manganese, (Mn), molybdenum (Mo) and boron (B).

Our extensive portfolio includes all these raw agrochemical materials needed to create fertilizers and deficiency correctors, either for use in the soil or in foliar fertilizers.

These elements can be provided in the shape of different inorganic chemical salts (sulphates, phosphates, nitrates, carbonates, chelates, etc.) and organic salts (acetates, formates, propionates, etc.), offering a wide range of combinations of simple salts depending on the intended use.

Specialties

We also have a wide range of specialties developed for the manufacture of fertilizers. Our technical team specialized in applications will be able to recommend those that best suit your needs.

  • Biostimulants and amino acids
    • Amino acid of Animal Origin

  • Basic substances.

Our Specialties for Agrochemicals

We work with the following product families for the manufacture of agrochemical inputs. If you do not find the product you are looking for please ask us!

Biostimulants and Amino Acids

Biostimulants are inputs intended to increase profitability and agricultural productivity.

The regular use of biostimulants has the effect of improving the quality of agricultural products, making them healthier and more affordable, as well as contributing to greater sustainability of the agricultural sector in general.

Amino acids of animal origin have a higher organic nitrogen content. They come from alkaline or enzymatic hydrolysis and have a high biological activity in the plant.

Exclusively plant-based biostimulant, which produces exceptional results thanks to its high level of free amino acids and organic nitrogen.
Harvested from the cold waters of Ireland, Algae of the Ascophyllum nodosum variety spend half their time immersed and half their time outdoors. This causes them to accumulate metabolites that give them a greater ability to withstand all kinds of adverse weather conditions.
We can also provide you with other biostimulants such as chitosan (crustacean exoskeleton) and a range of simple amino acids. All of our products are specially selected for their application in the agricultural industry.

Liquid Boron

We manufacture liquid boron complexed with ethanolamine in our own production plant. The boron content is 11% w/w.

The product can be used in organic farming according to EC regulation 834/2007, 889/2008. Ecocert Control SA F-32600

Colourants, Pigments and Dispersions

At Barcelonesa we work with a range of colorants for the manufacture of NPK and crystalline fertilizers (solids and liquids), phytosanitary products and seeds.

Chelating and complexing agents

Range of chelating and complexing agents to stabilize metals:
  • Gluconic acid (sodium gluconate)
  • EDTA acid
  • EDTA 4-H tetrasodium salt
  • EDTA 4-H
  • Aluminium lignosulphonate
  • Calcium lignosulphonate
  • Sodium lignosulphonate
  • Monoethanolamine
  • Sodium heptagluconate

Liquid Chelated metals

  • DTPA-Fe 6%
  • EDTA-Co 7%
  • EDTA-Cu 9%
  • EDTA-Fe 7,5%
  • EDTA-Mg 3%
  • EDTA-Mn 6%
  • EDTA-Zn 9%
  • Tailor-made

Surfactants

The use of surfactants in the agricultural sector reduces the amount of phytosanitary products required and enhances the effect of growth regulators, biostimulants, fertilizers and deficiency correctors. We have a wide range of surfactants that meet various functionalities: Emulsifiers, wetting agents, and dispersants.

Thickeners, Anti-caking and Anti-foaming agents.

Thickeners: Xanthan gum, CMC and sodium alginate, among others.
Antifoaming agents: Silicone and organic oil based antifoaming agents (Antiskum range).
Anti-caking agents: Naphthalenesulphonates and sodium tripolyphosphate, among others.

Basic Substances

These are substances with main uses in other areas/applications, and that secondarily have certain approved phytosanitary uses in agriculture.

Product usable in organic farming according to the European Community Regulation.

Ecological and Sustainable Inputs

We know that sometimes the criteria by which a certain product could be considered organic can be somewhat complex. This is mainly due to the lack of unity in the market that governs the regulations. Our Agro division advises you on the use of the that comply with current regulations. This way, you can be sure that your formulations will end up complying with current regulations. In addition, we provide you with the necessary documentation for our products so that your inputs are declared organic inputs and you get the certification.
