Agriculture - Contracted Agrochemical Processing

Summary of uses

We are engaged in contracted manufacture of formulations in the agrochemical industry.
Bentonite is used as a carrier (expander) in agrochemical formulations, and we, as a bentonite manufacturer, had supplied this clay as a raw material for agrochemicals.
Then, we focused on contracted manufacturing of granular agrochemicals and other agrochemical formulations, and are now engaged in contracted manufacture of agrochemicals for agrochemical producers.
There are various forms of agrochemicals such as powder, granular, and liquid forms. Granular formulations, which we mainly deal in, are easy to handle and safe for farmers, and thus have been used as a common agrochemical for a long time.
Recently, the lack and aging of farmers have been a serious problem in Japan, and agrochemicals with various functions for manpower and labor saving have been developed.
Such development requires increasingly complicated manufacturing methods, and the current needs cannot be satisfied without adequate knowledge and technologies related to those manufacturing methods.
KUNIMINE INDUSTRIES provides top-level technologies based on granulation technologies accumulated for many years and by making active use of diversifying formulation technologies.

Agrochemical manufacturing factories

Onahama Factory

Onahama Factory

This factory specializes in contracted manufacture of agrochemical formulations.
It manufactures and packages herbicides, pesticides, germicides, plant growth regulators, and agrochemical bases.
It can respond flexibly to various needs related to granular formulations.

Koriyama Factory

Koriyama Factory

This factory specializes in contracted manufacture of agrochemical formulations.
It manufactures and packages herbicides only, and is free from risk of cross-contamination with pesticides, germicides, etc.

* Cross-contamination: Refers to the intermingling of different agrochemical products in a manufacturing process.

Ota Factory

Ota Factory

It manufactures and packages agrochemicals other than herbicides (pesticides and germicides).
These are available in laminated aluminum bags in addition to conventional 1 kg and 3 kg kraft bags. The factory also has packaging lines for 10 to 20 kg bags.

High-speed mixer

This machine mixes raw materials and active ingredients homogeneously.
We have mixers that can mix materials homogeneously in only a few minutes and ribbon mixers that can mix large amounts of raw materials at a time.

Lateral extrusion-type granulating machine, Basket-type granulating machine

The screw impeller in the granulating machine extrudes a mixture through the screen, producing granules of the screen size.
In the Onahama Factory and Koriyama Factory, lateral extrusion-type granulating machines and basket-type granulating machines, respectively, are mainly used.

Commitment to quality

Engaged in contracted manufacture of agrochemical formulations for a large number of agrochemical manufacturers, we handle a wide variety of active ingredients and raw materials.
As a contract agrochemical manufacturer, we are making efforts to control and reduce risks of these chemicals by properly evaluating their potential risks, and are also committed to preventing cross-contamination.
We clean up machines properly before switching from one product to another to ensure that the level of residual components (active ingredients from the previous product) is below a specified level.
