Our vision

Continuous population growth and the increasing scarcity of land and resources like energy and water put pressure on agriculture.

By 2050 farmers will need to achieve a 70% production increase to cover food needs. This can only be done by optimizing the fertility of agricultural land in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly way. One of the elements to do so is the use of organic fertilizers.

This is why Samagro produces quality organic fertilizers that improve and maintain soil balance in the longer term. Purpose is to work on the most sustainable solution possible for the Flemish and Dutch manure surplus. To this end, Samagro works on building long-term relationships with both suppliers of manure (farmers, processors and biogas installations) and users (farmers and horticulturalists, fruit and vegetable growers) of organic fertilizers.
