The Amazone Group’s acquisition of Brazilian fertiliser spreader manufacturer MP Agro is part of a plan by the German farm machinery manufacturer to further internationalise its business and grow in South America.

With an extensive dealer network across Brazil, MP Agro Máquinas Agrícolas, as it is officially known, was founded in 2012 in Ibaté (São Paulo state). The first machine was the Z-Line, a demount system that transforms a self-propelled sprayer (includes certain Case IH, John Deere and Massey Ferguson models) to a fertiliser spreader (4.0-6.0m³).

Today, the firm’s wide range of stainless-steel spreaders includes the Taurus, Nidus and Robust twin-axle trailed models with capacities from 6.0-15m³. There is also a truck version of the Taurus.

The Amazone Group’s acquisition of the Brazilian manufacturer is subject to official approval. MP Agro’s existing workforce will remain unchanged and the business will continue to operate as usual.

“We will be relying on the MP Agro team by using both their expertise as well as their closeness to the local market, so that we at Amazone can bring our technology to Brazil,” explained Amazone owners Christian and Justus Dreyer.
