SpeedAgro S.R.L. was born in the year 2001 in the town of Coronda, province of Santa Fe.
It begins with the registration in SENASA of a line of coadjuvants, a fact that
will be concreted 2 years later.
In April 2004, CASAFE (Chamber of Agricultural Health and Fertilizers of Argentina) granted the PREMIUM CATEGORY certification to its deposits, thus allowing the arrival of companies
such as BASF.
In September 2007, ISO 9001: 2000 was certified in all its processes.
After a rigorous process of laboratory tests and field effectiveness tests, the registration is obtained for the SPEEDWET XION products, the line of compound formulations that means the evolution of the NG line.
A property is acquired in the Industrial Park in the town of Sauce Viejo, creating the SPEEDWET line.
The birth of the SPEEDWET NG line is consolidated. In October of the same year, the first stage of automation of the processing plant begins.
In November 2005, the first export to Uruguay was made.
Consolidates its leadership in the domestic market, coinciding this new milestone with the landing in Ecuador.

IN THE COMMUNITY
The UNL and SpeedAgro will work for region development
By signing a framework agreement, both entities have agreed to collaborate in staff training and scientific research activities, and in promotion activities of scientific and academic interest. The signature ceremony between Rector Albor Cantard and Managing partner Victor Escalas was held on Friday 29 November.
Aiming at working together for mutual collaboration in activities of staff training, of scientific research, and of promotion of academic and scientific interest, the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (UNL) and the regional company SpeedAgro have signed a framework agreement. The ceremony was held in the University’s Rectory building and it was signed by Rector Albor Cantard and the Managing partner Victor Escalas. Among other members of the company and university, vice chairman of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences (and 2014-2018 elected chairman) Norberto Gariglio, and chief executive of SpeedAgro, Esteban Gastaldi, were present.
SpeedAgro is also sponsoring the UNL and “we are really pleased of being able to sign this agreement that will be used as a new working tool, and this is why we truly believe it is the way to go, working together with the private sector in order to benefit all citizens”, stated Cantard after the ceremony.
On his behalf, Escalas pointed out that “innovating and developing processes in society is a constant and everyday challenge. The corporate social responsibility as private sector is what we can offer in order to do our part.
“What matters most is to get the private sector closer to university, demanding what it needs. This has been the main problem for years. This kind of link was not so simple to achieve, but it was reverted and it has still been so”, said Gariglio.
As for Gastaldi, “we are only a 10-year-old local enterprise but growing a lot as concerning research, technical development, adaptive planning, among others; all these are values developed in a university context and mainly at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences. Therefore, this agreement is an ideal complement to carry on with our company development.”

The Technology Adoption Programme (ProATec) for Major Clients aims at making the phytotherapy application process more efficient by using knowledge and technology at the service of sustainable agriculture. The programme considers diagnosis and measurement, improvement proposals, training and technical assistance. It consists of 3 levels of implementation so that the adoption of new technologies and the improvement of practices could be a progressive and measured process carried out by every person involved in it.
Below the different PROATECs in detail:
ADOPTING ADJUVANTS WITH CHEMICAL COMPOUND FORMULA
The program consists of identifying on an overall basis which problems a client may face in the application process, in the training by thematic modules, in the permanent technical assistance, and in the internal communication planning. The latter consists of permanently publishing technician-and- applicator-oriented information.
It will focus on calibration and fine-tune, training and subsequent sprayers audit.
A specialist technician in the field of applications will be in charge of the first three steps.
1) Sprayer Calibration
After diagnosis, it will proceed with equipment fine-tuning and identification of issues to be dealt to deal with in the training step.
The technician will speak about the whole carried-out work and will train which items have to be considered in the equipment calibration and efficient application processes.
3) Certification audit
A month after calibration, each calibrated equipment will be monitored to check if it is used according to the technician recommendations. There will not be prior notice and a report will be submitted to the person in charge and appointed by the client.
The monitoring will consist of the assessment of different variables already established in prior stages.
INDUCTION TRAINING IN THE APPLICATION PRACTICE TO OPTIMIZE THE USE OF WATER AND PHYTOSANITARY PRODUCTS.
This stage implies diagnosis and assessment of the best proposals, training and technical assistance.
In this case, it will be focused on:
- The application techniques on pesticides and the use of chemical compound formulation adjuvants, making the use of water and phytosanitary products more efficient;
- How much the application practice with low volume with our formulation technology is contributing;
- Less pesticide-contaminated water;
- The decrease of operating costs related to less water transport, ease and speed in making mixtures;
- Higher levels of autonomy on the job;
- Wide-reaching of pesticides. If attention to the drop size of the irrigation sprinkler, this will lead to a wider coverage and better penetration performance on zones hindered by stubble or crops;
- Lower loss of pesticides via drainage, drift, and evaporation;
- Phytotoxicity elimination related to the use of agricultural oils;
- Evaporation and drift control.
SpeedAgro LLC undertakes to comply with providing its clients with adjuvants of agriculture use that meet its needs and requirements. Also it undertakes to comply with improving permanently the internal processes, in order to guarantee and to ensure the high standards of the products and services quality the company provides.
