Our Story

MAGMA Agricultural Inputs S.A. was accredited in 2012 by the Greek authorities to perform field trials according to Good Experimental Practice (GEP). By 2014, two well-equipped field stations were established, enabling trials in both northern and southern Greece. Subsequently, in 2016 we obtained accreditation to carry out residue studies in accordance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). The years 2018-19 witnessed a significant expansion of MAGMA. The field trial department acquired new office and lab space in order to improve and upscale the services. We started forming international partnerships for importing cutting edge environment-friendly plant protection products to Greece. The sale of selected products began through the distribution network of partner company Alfa Agricultural Supplies S.A. Finally, a research & development branch was opened in Crete and formed close ties with academia for creating innovative products and technologies. In the coming years, we plan to continue this streak of expansion, motivated by an ambitious vision.

Our Vision

Today, agriculture faces a significant challenge. On the one hand, high throughput production must be maintained in order to feed the rapidly growing human population. On the other hand, the heavy cost of classical agricultural inputs on human health and the environment is becoming clearer. This challenge drives a significant global shift towards innovative agronomic methods and technologies that are both effective and clean. We strive to be a major role player in keeping Greek agriculture in pace with this movement. In this spirit we will continue:

  • Importing cutting-edge green products to Greece, validating their efficacy under the local conditions and facilitating their registration.
  • Delivering these products to growers nation-wide along with the necessary know-how for their successful use.
  • Contributing to the build up of a critical mass of local expertise in green agricultural practices.
  • Developing effective and clean methods against the most challenging pests and diseases of the Mediterranean region to then market these in and beyond Greece.
