Our history began in 1967 at Congonhas Farm by Honorato Rodrigues da Cunha in Rancho Alegre, PR, where soil pests remaining from an eradicated coffee plantation were about to make the new soybean crop unfeasible.
In an attempt to help his father solve this serious problem, his son Ricardo, at just 15 years old, created — without realizing it — the first Brazilian equipment for applying liquid products in the planting furrow to combat soil pests.
His invention was far ahead of its time, and for years he improved, modernized, and adapted his equipment to the new challenges and products that arose over time. In 1999, he founded his company, "Orion," initially as a small endeavor.
A success story
Today, Orion is an absolute market leader in Brazil and Latin America. Ricardo's invention made the viability of using biological products in Brazilian agriculture possible. These products are now used on a large scale as a means of achieving economic, social, environmental, and agronomic sustainability. They bring food security and agronomic longevity by replacing chemical products with biological alternatives.
