We registered remarkable income growth this year, and we closed it with good business momentum. We also started operations in our subsidiary Seedlings India Pvt Ltd plant and our acquired J&K-based unit Agrico which will definitely push the formulation segment and increase the brand business significantly. Overall, the company is in a strong position to utilize the future opportunities and is looking forward to explore the markets outside India in order to expand our global footprints. ”

Our R&D team is coming up with a number of innovative and niche chemistry-led products in the coming year thus creating an extremely strong pipeline of business. Our newly launched high-precision products namely Ronfen, Warden, Reveal, Tombo, and Axeman will not only act as real differentiators from conventional crop solutions for farmers but create value for all our stakeholders by increasing the revenue significantly. With our focus on niche products, we are targeting a growth of around 30% and an EBITA of more than 20% in the coming year,”Mr Vimal Alawadhi added further.
