In the last five years, Chemical Agrosava almost doubled its revenues, which in 2015 exceeded three billion dinars.
The company's goals are based on the development of new products and services. In relation to the defined goals, every year the company employs skilled staff which can respond to high development demands. There are currently seven doctors of science and over 60% of employees have university degree. Knowledge and experience of employees is exchanged through continuous training not only of employees, but also of end users, as well as through the professional practice of students from universities in Belgrade and Novi Sad.
In line with the idea of constant development and advancement, in 2015 we launched a production plant for water-dispersible granules (WG), the only such plant in Serbia and in this region.
Chemical Agrosava has been successfully producing hybrid corn seed for 10 years and it is the first company to present silage corn hybrids to the Serbian market. The well-known AS hybrids are exported not only to European countries, but also to Russia, Azerbaijan, Morocco, Algeria, and far Iran.
In cooperation with the world's most famous breeding house that has developed hybrid wheat, we presented the first wheat hybrids to the Serbian market last autumn.
The Golden Gazelle Award motivates all employees to initiate new projects and to upgrade the existing ones, but also it gives them the willingness to apply this model to customers, suppliers, employees and the wider community.
