History

Operating since 1978, Araguaia has grown and consolidated its activities in the heart of Brazil as one of the largest and most respected distributors of fertilizers and agricultural products in the Midwest.

The name choice was in honor of the Araguaia River, one of the most beautiful natural resources of the state of Goiás, which also makes it memorable and easy-to-remember.

We have a comprehensive and planned infrastructure comprising four manufacturing units, capable of producing over 1.5 million tons of fertilizers per year, working in a single shift, and a network of stores entirely structured to service the various agricultural activities.
Orientated by the strategic vision, the location of the manufacturing units was designed based on the analysis of each region potential, which allows following the demand growth of the places wherein it operates.

Araguaia is proud of the quality, superior standard of its products and technical team that intends to advance even further in the development of intelligent, environmentally appropriate and practical solutions to increase soil fertility and productivity of the crop and cattle farmer.
