Lancha (or Tizón tardio) is Late blight: a serious disease of potato and tomato caused by the fungus Phytopthora infestans. The word is also used for Early blight (or Tizón temprano) caused by the fungus Alternaria solani.
Blight is the cause of probably the largest use of agrochemicals.

Kikuyo (Pennisetum clandestinum) is a grass,
native from Ethiopia, and introduced in the
Andes at the beginning of the 20th century.
First it was imported as an ornamental plant and as cattle food. Today it is a pest-species invading farmlands (nitrogen lover).
That's how it goes: one half of the community fights the grass, the others apply fertilizers in favour of their Holstein breed. A clear win-win situation.

The Co-operative society of Orense
stems from the 1960s when Sr. Franqueira won some farmers for his
idea that the only way to become profitable was by working together.
Franqueira had a tough time convincing the conservative lot in this backward province. But he succeeded and Coren now stands for more than 6000 families.

Notice also the skilled use of the shadow: the brand really jumps in our direction.
The wattled egg probably announces STAR as chicken food. The graphics of the TOTEM brand are more inspired. The center 'T' emulates a real Totem made from sheep and cattle heads.
Solonia — engrais liquides (or liquid fertilizer)
The Office national industriel de l'azote came into existence on April 11, 1924. After a long history of making fertilizer and explosives ONIA became AZF (Azote Fertilisants). AZF made headlines with the catastrophic explosion of September 21st, 2001 making the city of Toulouse look like a war zone.
Solonia (concatenation of soil & ONIA) was introduced in 1962 (press conference with a visit to the test plots). This gives us also an earliest date for the paintings which are rather young compared with many others on this site.
In 1967 the company had a special edition of Astérix et les Normands published. The album is enriched with a nice plate showing a springtime scene suggesting that Solonia is a real magic potion.
