Agronomic Technical Consultant (“ATC”)

About Us

TIMAC AGRO is an industrial company specializing in soil conditioners, plant and animal nutrition, and biostimulants. In operation since 1959, we are a subsidiary of Groupe Roullier, and are currently present in 39 countries around the world. At TIMAC AGRO our mission is at the forefront of everything we do. Our primary focus is to help Canadian farmers improve their production, in pursuit of a sustainable and more profitable agriculture.

TIMAC AGRO utilizes an innovative range of compound fertilizers based on agronomic additives from natural origins, stimulating plant physiology and improving the efficiency of fertilizer use. In crop production, we take a systems approach to address limiting factors in yield and quality. Our programs focus on nutrient efficiency, soil health, and crop productivity. The process begins with an evaluation of best management practices and ends with a customized fertility program designed to achieve better return on investment. Our fertilizer solutions are based on seaweed and other plant extracts, which have a dual function: stimulating the performance of the fertilizers and improving plant growth and quality. Our intensive product research and development takes place at our Global Innovation Centre in St. Malo, France where we collaborate with more than 120 universities around the world.

TIMAC AGRO employees are passionate and committed to delivering quality technical advice and service to local farmers. Following the receipt of the Ag in Motion 2019 Harvest Award for our product Top Phos, we are seeking to rapidly expand our operations in Canada.
