TIMAC AGRO sets up retail and research hub in eastern Ontario
A part of France-based Groupe Roullier, TIMAC AGRO has announced new operations and a research facility in eastern Ontario.
TIMAC AGRO will offer plant and animal nutrition products and establish a research and demonstration site in Leeds-Grenville County.
Ryan Brophy will be in charge of coordinating Eastern Ontario activities and to partner with Western Canada-based V6 Agronomy to set-up a research development model across the province and a logistics hub.
“This is definitely an exciting time to be a part of agricultural progress in Canada,” says Ryan Brophy. “I believe that soil health and new approaches to crop nutrient delivery are essential for sustainability and the bottom line. Partnering with TIMAC AGRO Canada will contribute to the important discussion, partnerships, and work needed around plant nutrition, especially in this era of 4R Nutrient Management.”
This new site will parallel field demonstrations and university research work TIMAC AGRO has already begun conducting in Western and Eastern Canada and work in direct collaboration with Groupe Roullier’s Global Innovation Centre, based at St-Malo, France.
“We are very excited about the quality and diversity of the people who have chosen to join us. We all share the same motivation towards making a positive impact on Ontario agriculture. We seek to develop further relationships with both farmers and ag-retailers,” says Simon Jolette-Riopel, general manager of TIMAC AGRO Canada.
