Agrinos Opens Microbial Production Facility In Clackamas, Oregon

09/14/2016
Agrinos, a leading biological crop input provider, opened its 28,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art microbial production facility in Clackamas, Oregon.

The new facility, located about ten miles from Portland, will accommodate increased production capacity for the Agrinos line of proprietary High Yield Technology microbial products. When applied to specialty and commodity crops these products help growers practice profitable agriculture by increasing crop productivity, improving crop quality and enhancing fertilizer efficiency while naturally replenishing soil health and productivity.

"We're very pleased to locate our new facility in the Greater Portland area, which allows us to seamlessly integrate with new product development and research operations at Agrinos' Global Biological Innovation Center in Davis, California, and our production facility in Sonora, Mexico," added Wagner.

The new Agrinos production facility includes a quality control and quality assurance lab, where extensive testing will be conducted on raw materials and products at various stages of production to ensure Agrinos' exacting standards of quality are met before packaging and shipment.

"The addition of a second production facility is a significant milestone for Agrinos that truly reflects the commitment of our shareholders to the long-term development and deployment of Agrinos technologies, as well as the demand created by the value that growers are capturing from the use of our microbial products," said D. Ry Wagner, CEO of Agrinos. "It's also a reflection of the rapid adoption of biological products not only for use with specialty crops—such as fruit, vegetable and tree crops—but also for use with commodity crops worldwide, including significant market growth here in the U.S."

According to company officials, agrinos microbial crop inputs contain natural soil-borne microorganisms which have been proven to strengthen the soil and deliver highly bioavailable nutrients to help plants prosper and increase productivity. The use of microbial or biological inputs for agricultural crop production has increased significantly in recent years as more growers are experiencing the benefits from a plant health, crop quality and sustainability standpoint.
