CTA Fertiberia US, the centre of innovation

We create the solutions of the future from our prestigious agronomic and research laboratories housed in the Agri-environmental Technologies Centre – Fertiberia CTA.


A world-class working environment dedicated exclusively to R&D&I

Innovation is part of our DNA. For that reason, in addition to integrating it in all our business lines, we also promote public research, participating very actively in research projects in Spain and overseas, working in coordination with universities and public and private bodies.

One of our milestones in this field is the creation and start-up in 2016, in collaboration with the University of Seville, of the "Agri-environmental Technologies Centre – Grupo Fertiberia CTA" located in CITIUS (Research, Technology and Innovation Centre of the University of Seville). We centralise all our innovative activity there.

Agronomic Innovation Management

Fertiberia CTA is our established centre of operations for the Agronomic Innovation Department, which centralises the innovation, support and technical and agronomic advising activities of our entire Group, in a world-class technological and academic environment dedicated to the development of cutting-edge technologies in the field of plant nutrition.

The centre has modern laboratories, tools and state-of-the-art technologies for the development of research and innovation activities.

Highlights include the formulation laboratory, specifically designed for state-of-the-art plant nutrition products, and the process laboratory with modern pilot plants.

R&D Division

At the CTA, we design and develop the R&D&I projects and activities carried out in the company.

To do this, Fertiberia CTA has a multidisciplinary team of researchers with extensive training and experience in the fields of agronomy, the environment, chemistry and microbiology.

The improvement of the efficiency of nutritional products, the preservation of the environment, the circular economy, the improvement and conservation of the soil and agricultural quality and productivity are the common factors in the lines of research developed by Grupo Fertiberia.

Agronomic Laboratory

CTA Fertiberia also has an Agronomic Laboratory where fertiliser, soil, foliar and water analyses are carried out and then used to provide personalised and free fertilisation recommendations for our customers.

Every year, we carry out up to 10,000 analyses and fertilisation recommendations.


We develop major research projects from these laboratories


Field tests

Every year, we conduct over 80 field tests on advanced fertilisers in farmers' plots in the main agricultural districts on the Iberian Peninsula for the purpose of:

  • Achieving proper validation of products under development.
  • Encouraging a greater impact on the disclosure of the best fertilisation techniques and management.
  • Increasing user's trust in our products.


Moving forward as a team in collaboration with universities, research centres and institutions

In addition to our collaboration with the University of Seville at CTA, our group participates in collaboration agreements with over 30 universities and research centres, which makes it possible to undertake excellent large-scale projects.

In order to produce plant nutrition solutions of maximum agronomic and environmental efficiency to lead the development of products designed for the agriculture of the future, we also maintain collaboration agreements and relationships with many prestigious institutions and entities, among which we can highlight:
