Targeting sugarcane and other farmers, public sector major FACT is all set to enter Maharashtra with its flagship fertiliser product Factomfos.

The company has signed an MoU with Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilisers (RCF) and the product will be marketed in Maharashtra under RCF brand name, giving credit to FACT as the manufacturer.

To begin with, a minimum quantity of 2,500 tonnes will be moved by rail to southern Maharashtra, D Nanda Kumar, Director (Marketing) FACT, said.

“We will make an entry through RCF with a minimal quantity initially, which will be increased once Factomfos production improves by three lakh tonnes once the new ₹300-crore facility starts functioning in the Cochin Division by 2019 end,” he told BusinessLine.
