The Company ensured the timely availability of critical agri-inputs including Fertilizer despite the tight raw material situation, leveraging its long-term contracts with the suppliers and backward integration. The Company has embarked upon a digital transformation journey that will help further improve efficiency by using real-time data and analytics in decision making across the value chain. The Company continues to invest in Supply Chain, Manufacturing excellence, R&D, New product development, Digital marketing & Branding.

Healthy reservoir levels, good soil moisture conditions and a forecast of a normal-monsoon augers well for Indian agriculture for the ensuing Kharif season. Coromandel will leverage its strong presence in the agri-inputs space and continue to work closely with the Government and the farming community to ensure availability and providing sustainable farming solutions to enhance farm productivity.”
