The Czech company AGRO CS was established in 1992 as a follower of the former company Agropodnik. The company continued business activities of Agropodnik and started to produce substrates and fertilizers and sell goods for gardeners. In the following years daughter companies in Slovakia, Poland, Ukraine, Hungary and Romania were established. In 2009 and 2011 two subsidiary companies in Lithuania were established. These companies are engaged in mining black and white peat, which is a basic ingredient of substrates produced by AGRO CS. In 2015 AGRO CS a.s. became an owner of peatbog „Skuraty” in Belarus.
In 2013 and 2015 AGRO CS became a majority owner of two agricultural companies oriented to plant and meat production, and also invested into the company Engelmann Czech, that takes care of golf courses in the Czech Republic.
Within the years the company grew up and it was necessary to increase the production and storage capacity. In 2007 a new production and logistics centre was built. Its total warehouse capacity is about 115 000 m2 of a solid surface and 60 000 m3 of covered premises.
