IQV Agro sales up 15% in 2011
Spanish crop protection company Industrias Químicas del Vallés (IQV - Barcelona) has posted a 14.5% rise in sales for 2011 to €91.8 million ($121.4 million at the current rate). The performance came despite a “weak” domestic market. The first half was especially fruitful with sales up by a quarter, driven by expanding exports ( Agrow No 622, p 10). IQV sells largely pesticides, including copper fungicides, and plant nutrition products.
