As an an integrated player, IMFA has the added advantage of cost management over other non-integrated players, who have seen their margins take a hit on the back of reduced demand and high coal and energy costs.

During the quarter, the company launched four new products in the crop protection segment.

The company registered a turnover of ₹19,255 crore in the financial year 2021-22. “We are witnessing adequate monsoon coverage and higher reservoir levels. This augers well for Indian agriculture in our key operating markets,” Sameer Goel, Managing Director of Coromandel International Limited, said.

“We focused on leveraging the operational efficiencies at the plants, smart sourcing-enabled timely availability of raw materials and marketing efforts backed by agronomist activities and this ensured meeting the agricultural needs of the farming community,” he said.

During the quarter, the company launched four new products in the crop protection segment. “We are conducting drone spraying trials in the farmer’s fields with speciality nutrition and crop protection products,” he said.
