SICIT 2000 S.p.A

SICIT 2000 is a chemical company, part of SICIT GROUP founded in 1960, located in Arzignano (Vicenza), North-Eastern Italy. The two production units of SICIT 2000 are only devoted, since 1960, to the manufacturing of special fertilisers (biostimulants) based on aminoacids & peptides and have a global production capacity of 100 MT/day. The manufacturing process is carried out according to the European Community Regulation (Reg. 1069/2009/CE and Reg. 142/2011/CE), to ensure the maximum level of hygiene and safety for human, animals and environment. Customized formulations in terms of free amino acids content, molecular weight distribution, added microelements, etc. can be supplied upon request. We sell our aminoacids & peptides only to agrochemical companies (Multinational and National) in over 50 Countries. Our customers are allowed to use their own brands or PROTIFERT, a brand now present in more than 30 Countries worldwide.

S.I.C.IT. S.p.A. (acronym of Società Industrie Chimiche ITaliane) was founded in 1960 in Chiampo (Vicenza) and nowadays it’s the holding and financial Company of the Group. In 2000, following an internal re-organization, two new companies were created: SICIT 2000 and SICIT CHEMITECH.


Production Unit # 1 is located in Chiampo (VI) and started its activity in 1960. It was the first plant to produce special fertilizers based on aminoacids & peptides worldwide and in 2011 has been completely renewed and automated.

Production Unit # 2 is located in Arzignano (VI) and was inaugurated in 2004 and has been entirely designed by SICIT CHEMITECH engineers. With its covered area of 20,000 m2 is one of the biggest in the world, and it has been defined the “state of the art” of amino acids production facilities. The plant is in fact completely automated and equipped with the most advanced technologies. All the production phases of the entire manufacturing process are controlled by a distributed control system (DCS), consisting in more than 3,000 I/O signals, and controlled thorough a HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) system.

SICIT CHEMITECH S.p.A. is the group company devoted to product Quality Control and Traceability and to the Research & Development of new formulations and processes.

The Quality Control laboratory, certified ISO 9001, daily controls both the manufacturing process phases and all final product batches, performing a complete chemical-physical and bacteriological characterisation of aminoacids and peptides. The most important analytical instruments are: Inductively coupled plasma Optical Emission Spectrophotometer (ICP-OES) for the determination of concentrations of metal and non-metal elements; four high-pressure liquid chromatographic (HPLC) lines allow to perform the determinations of Anions concentrations; Molecular Weight Distribution; Free and Total Amino-acids concentration, Chiral distribution of amino-acids (L- and D-forms); Atomic absorption spectrophotometer for the determination of metals concentrations; NC elemental analyzer for elemental analysis of nitrogen, carbon, oxygen and sulphur.

R&D Centre and Laboratory develop and test the effectiveness of new processes and new products in special pilot installations. At the same time they may ensure the production of small quantities of experimental products, even for testing at customer sites.

The traceability procedure allows to identify every single product batch. In fact, each final product batch is identified by a specific lot number, which allows to go back to the corresponding raw material through specific books managed by the Production Department. In this way a complete traceability of the material and the process is guaranteed.

A Chain of Success for Over 50 Years

SICIT 2000 S.p.A. manufactures and sells aminoacids & peptides for agriculture. With two production units and a global production capacity of 100 MT/day of liquid products and 40 MT/day of powder products, SICIT can claim to be the worldwide biggest producer of aminoacids-based fertilisers.

SICIT manufacturing process is highly standardized and ensures to obtain final products with the highest quality features:

  • high concentration of aminoacids & peptides
  • constant composition
  • long shelf life (5 years)
  • NO microbial contamination
  • NO sedimentation or decomposition
  • controlled equilibrium between free aminoacids and peptides
  • high concentration in aminoacids important for plant metabolism (glycine, proline)

The high flexibility of SICIT manufacturing process allows to obtain a wide range of products, both liquid and in powder form, which can be customized in terms of total and free amino acids content, molecular weight distribution, added microelements, etc.

Standard products: solely based on aminoacids & peptides. Useful on all crops, both by foliar spray or soil application.

Special products: based on meso- and micro- nutrients complexed to aminoacids & peptides. Specific products to prevent and treat nutritional deficiencies and to activate plant internal mechanism of resistance to parasites.

Organic-mineral products: a combination of different sources of nitrogen, both organic from aminoacids & peptides) and inorganic. Useful for foliar spray and fertigation.

Crop protection products: this group includes different products, all based on aminoacids & peptides, with fungicide and bactericide action, insect attractants and surfactants.
