The magazine had this year the 18th anniversary, being published continuously, in excellent graphic conditions, A4 format, with minimum 52 full color pages. Weekly we are distributing 5 000 copies and we have national coverage. Most of the copies are sold through subscriptions paid directly to the editorial office. Profitul Agricol is also delivered trough specialized press distribution companies, both in Bucharest and abroad.

The subscribers of our magazine are primarily farmers and the agricultural institutions of the government: all local centers of APIA (Payment and Intervention Agency for Agriculture), ADS (Romanian State Domain Agency ), ANARZ (National Agency for Animal Breeding Amelioration and Reproduction ), APDRP (Payment Agency for Rural Development and Fishing), DADR (Department for Agriculture and Rural Development), OJCA (County Agricultural Consultancy Offices), ANIF (National Administration of Land Improvement), ROMSILVA (National Forest Administration ) etc.

According to our records, most of the subscribers are commercial companies and agricultural associations. Many large companies have more than 10 subscriptions, for more of their employees that read our magazine (Insula Mare a Brailei, Agrofam Fetesti, Agricola Bacau, Agrocom Frumusani, Interagro etc.). We have partnerships with major producer's organizations such as Cooperativa Agricola Muntenia, Transylvanian Federation of Cattle Breeders , Romania Farmers' Association etc..

Most of our subscribers are from the southern counties (Constanta, Braila, Ialomita, Calarasi, Olt, Teleorman) and western districts of the country (Arad, Timisoara, Bihor). Since June 2006, we gained almost 1,000 subscribers in the counties of Moldavia (Galati, Bacau, Neamt, Botosani, Iasi).
The magazine is successfully sold to the food industry (such as bread, milk, oil and meat factories) and city halls, etc..

If we are considering that Romania has about 10 - 15 thousand agricultural companies, we have a coverage of over 40 % of the real market potential.

Opinii agro-politice
Întrebat ce solutie are compania sa pentru Tanymecus, în conditiile interzicerii neonicotinoidelor, Ioan Enoiu, managerul Naturevo, admite ca insecticide omologabile curand nu exista, însa propune, ca alternativa, o solutie radicala: erbicidarea totala a suprafetelor necultivate: margini de tarlale, margini de drumuri, canale de irigatii si desecare, miristi si, mai ales, parloage. Aceste suprafete aflate în vecinatatea terenurilor cultivate reprezinta focare de îmburuienare si de infestare cu insecte (implicit cu Tanymecus) si boli ale culturilor. Enoiu puncteaza ca prin alte tari "nu exista asemenea nenorociri cu insecte, pentru ca nu se vad alei sau canale necuratate". Fermierii îi dau dreptate, dar, cand vine vorba de solutiile aplicabile sa ajungem "ca afara", parerile difera, chiar radical. În viziunea lui Enoiu "erbicidele totale devin cel mai bun insecticid". El are un punct de vedere radical în privinta parloagelor, considerand ca cei care nu-si cultiva terenurile si nici nu le întretin ar trebui sa fie responsabili de pagubele pe care le aduc culturilor învecinate. "Este cate un proprietar care are un hectar în mijlocul unei suprafete mari, de 100 de hectare. Si nu vrea sa faca nimic cu terenul lui. Nici nu-l cultiva, nici nu-l da în arenda. Pentru ca legislatia nu îl pedepseste daca produce daune culturii din vecinatate. Daca ar fi pus sa achite despagubiri, ar da terenul imediat, sa scape de el. UE vrea sa plafoneze subventiile celor care fac performanta si sa le dam bani celor care beau subventia la carciuma. As lua subventia complet si as folosi banii sa curat toate canalele, drumurile, miristile, toate zonele învecinate. În doi-trei ani am putea rezolva problema."
