Management take of Q1FY23 Performance

Commenting on the Q1 performance, Dhanuka Agritech Chairman R G Agarwal said: "This year, the rainfall has been very uneven and although the overall rainfall is above average, East and North region has suffered from very less rainfall whereas South and West has seen unprecedented rains resulting in flooding. This impacted the 1st Quarter of the Company. Now, the rainfall has covered most of India in July except for the East region, therefore, we expect that rest of the year should be good for the Company.″

Dhanuka Agritech will continue to focus on introducing new innovative products in the market to cater to the growing needs of the farmers.

"We have launched two such products in June. The pipeline is strong for the remaining quarters of FY'23. We would soon be launching a nationwide campaign to acknowledge and salute the contribution our hardworking farmers," Mr. Agarwal said.

During the June quarter, the company brought two new products - Cornex & Zanet - in the market which have been very well received by farmers.

CORNEX, is a novel herbicide developed by Dhanuka Agritech Limited in Technical collaboration with Nissan Chemical Corporation, Japan. It has been introduced for the first time in India by Dhanuka Agritech Limited. It is a broad spectrum, selective, post emergence and systemic herbicide which is one shot solution for farmers for controlling major broad and narrow leaf weeds and sedges (Cyperus rotundus) in maize crop. CORNEX will empower the maize farmers by its dual mode of action, which will help to control major weeds in their crop to enhance the productivity and increase their income.

ZANET, a novel fungicide is a powerful combination of Fungicide & Bactericide. It is the first such molecule developed in collaboration with TWO Japanese chemical manufacturers Hokko Chemical Industry Ltd., Japan and Nippon Soda Co., Ltd., Japan.  ZANET is a broad spectrum, strong systemic fungicide providing excellent control against Bacterial Leaf Spot & Powdery Mildew in Tomato.
