The company attributed a 35% increase in sales in 2022 to a higher demand in biofertilizers and a 50% increase in sales of Kiplant Allgrip and Kiplant iNmass products, as well as the biocontrol solutions Kiplant Essence, Microil and Kiplant VS-04.

Asfertglobal’s goal is to lead the nutrition sector without any environmental impact as well as bioprotection, seeking to be on the cutting edge of development and innovation to not only guarantee crop yields, but also the conservation of natural resources.
