Economic Impact in Israel

Israel is one of our largest bases of operation, so in 2019, together with Rotem Strategy Company, we measured our impact on the Israeli economy using a globally accepted model for economic contribution assessment. We based the assessment of ADAMA’s impact on three dimensions: employment, GDP and state income.

The study concluded that ADAMA’s operations in Israel create a significant economic contribution to the country. ADAMA generated about 4,365 direct and indirect jobs, 1.7 billion NIS in direct and indirect products, and 562 million NIS in state revenue. Over the past 15 years, ADAMA has invested over 3.5 billion NIS in fixed assets and has received tax benefits of 203 million NIS. In addition to these direct economic contributions, the analysis found that ADAMA greatly contributed to the export of Israeli goods, employment and development of geographically peripheral communities, to academia and research, and to the promotion of secondary and higher education.

Our History

ADAMA celebrates its more than 70-year heritage, having started from two Israeli crop protection companies, Makhteshim and Agan, that were established in 1952 and 1945 respectively, and then merged in 1997 to form Makhteshim Agan. In 2011, we became part of the ChemChina Group (the China National Chemical Corporation), which started a new and exciting chapter in our story. In 2014, we introduced our new global brand and became known as ADAMA. In 2017, with our landmark combination with Sanonda, we returned to the public markets.

On June 2020 the Company announced that it joined Syngenta Group as a distinctive member. This newly formed ag-industry leader was created together by agricultural businesses ChemChina and Sinochem.
