Agrokimya Azerbaijan LLC received a status of the 8th resident of Sumgait Chemical-Industrial Park. The certificate was presented to representatives of the company on June 14 during the "Investment promotion in Azerbaijan: new approaches and priorities" conference, Trend reported. Thanks to this, in the near future Azerbaijan will be able to provide foreign countries with its own pesticide supplies.
Rashad Kerimov, Director of Agrokimya noted that the company will produce pesticides in the territory of the Sumgait Chemical-Industrial Park.
He noted that pesticides have always been imported to Azerbaijan, and Agrokimya will be the first local producer of pesticides.
“We plan to produce around 9,000 tons of pesticides, and we will use Turkish and German experience in that field,” Kerimov said.
He claimed that the construction of plant and start of production will allow Azerbaijan not only to completely refuse the import of pesticides to the country, but also to become an exporter to the regional and global markets.
