 Nichino America, Inc. celebrates its twentieth anniversary on March 7.

A commitment to excellence in product development and customer service has propelled Nichino America through twenty successful years of providing growers the best in crop protection solutions.

Nichino America, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nihon Nohyaku Co. Ltd. based in Japan. Nihon Nohyaku Co. Ltd., established in 1928, is Japan’s oldest agrochemical manufacturing company. The history of Nichino America's parent company, Nihon Nohyaku, can be traced to the first agrochemical ever developed in Japan. Nihon Nohyaku, the recipient of many prestigious chemical technology awards, today is an innovative leader in the global agrochemical and pharmaceuticals industries.

In 1995, a representative office of Nihon Nohyaku was established in New York.  At that time, the company licensed its chemistries to other agrochemical companies. The company later incorporated as Nichino America, Inc., relocated to Delaware, and in 2001 began formulating Nichino America products from chemistry developed in Japan.  The Delaware-based company started with one product and six employees.

Today, Nichino America offers 25 crop protection products known for their efficacy on target pests, ease of application, and excellent fit with integrated pest management and resistance management programs. Nichino America espouses to market and sell unique chemistry that has been extensively researched and tested; model product placement through best-use practices; and to create credibility with customers based on trust, knowledge, and superior customer service. In addition, the company licenses active ingredients to third parties in the turf, ornamental, and greenhouse segments. Most recently, in February 2021, Nichino America established a subsidiary, Nichino Mexico, to serve the agribusiness in Mexico.

“Our twenty years of success is attributed to being a research and technology driven company, offering customers products with novel chemistry,” says Jeff Johnson, President of Nichino America. “We pride ourselves on our laser sharp focus, targeting key crops in geographies where our products have the best fit for our customers’ needs. And we do this with a team of employees who possess a passionate spirit for serving our customers and achieving our goals.”

From a fledgling company with just six employees and one product to a dynamic, innovative company that is making its mark in today’s crop protection arena, Nichino America provides growers a wide range of herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides that provide highly efficacious pest control solutions.

And its commitment to customer service provides the perfect complement to the unique set of products available through Nichino America.
