  • Análisis de las fusiones y adquisiciones en la industria del agronegocio en América Latina   2019-07-30

    De acuerdo con las últimas estadísticas publicadas por AgroPages, durante los últimos seis años ha habido 23 fusiones y adquisiciones con empresas latinoamericanas de agronegocios, en sectores como semillas, protección y nutrición de cultivos.

Por ello, es difícil averiguar el nivel de inversión en estas adquisiciones, pero su importancia comercial es digna de exploración.
