Our company was founded in 1982 in Mar del Plata, Argentina, to offer seed potato health analysis services, thus becoming the first laboratory in the country accredited to use the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to that end.
In December 1985, our production of pre-basic seed potato minitubers was the first production in Argentina by a private company.
In these 40 years, agronomist Ana María Escarrá, founding partner and current president, has successfully established a company that excels in plant disease diagnosis services, sanitary management of potato crops and production of seed potato minitubers. We have a team of specialized professionals and highly qualified staff.
