WHAT WE DO
We manufacture, distribute and market a wide range of product categories consisting of (a) soil health management products; (b) crop nutrition products; (c) bio stimulant products; (d) bio pesticide products (e) Integrated Pest Management (IPM) products; (f) new technologies; and (g) crop protection products.
Our new technologies segment includes Agribot Drones and Bhuparikshak.
Agribot Drones: Our drones are named as Agribot. This drone technology is developed to cater to the farmers and reduce their burden. Drones can help farmers to optimize the use of inputs (seed, fertilizers, water), to react more quickly to threats (weeds, pests, fungi), to save time crop scouting (validate treatment/actions taken), to improve variable-rate prescriptions in real time and estimate yield from a field. This is the DGCA approved drone for the purpose of the agri sector. This drone will allow a farmer to spray any sort of soil health management, crop nutrition and crop protection products over an area one acre of land in six minutes, thus reducing the time of spraying such products and also making the process much easier.
Bhuparikshak is first-of-its-kind novel device is capable of detecting soil health in just 90 seconds through an embedded mobile application. It would assist individual farmers in obtaining soil health parameters of agricultural fields with recommended dose of fertilizers without having to go to a laboratory. The device is based on Near Infrared Spectroscopy technology that provides real-time soil analysis reports on smartphones with an embedded mobile application named Bhuparikshak available on Google Play Store. It also maintains farmer land data to keep track for future developments.
We have strengthened farmer outreach through Nova Kisan Seva Kendra. through which it educates farmers on various crop management practices. NKSK team provides farmers with need-based solutions, products, technologies, methodologies, know-how and usage skills thereby enhancing farm yield.
NKSK structure consists of 32 NKSK Co-ordinators, 13 Kisan Mithras and 253 Kisan Sevaks and the hierarchy of the system.
NKSK coordinators are women who have a degree in agriculture and they work from offices. Kisan Mithras are agriculture graduates who have an understanding about product deficiencies, whereas kisan sevaks work closely with the farmers and try to understand the problem or deficiency and report it to higher authorities. The kisan sevak meets the farmer, understands the problem and feeds it into the system.
With an objective of providing information on best practices adopted, and other useful inputs to the farmers, a monthly magazine titled AGRI CLINIC has been launched.
The editorial board headed by Managing Director securitizes and select the articles to be published for the magazine. The contributors of the articles include agri-scientist, farmers and general public.
The magazine is completely in the local language i.e. Telugu so that it can be easily read and understood by the general public. A Telugu monthly magazine dedicated for transferring world class information and technology regarding upcoming trends and techniques in agri and agri related sectors It also identifies and recognizes farmers for their achievements in implementing self-developed techniques in obtaining better yields. It is a content of rich and information driven magazine with its unique style of presentation.
We have a dedicated in-house Research and Development (“R&D”) and a Quality Control / Quality Assurance facility at our manufacturing facilities to support technology transfer for new products and on-site process improvement incubation centre. We also have tie-ups with various universities to get access of process know-how, innovation, R&D, knowledge transfer, technology transfer, product transfer, credit support, man power, development, etc. We have taken on lease 66.11 acres of land at Valaparla Village, Andhra Pradesh as a part of R&D, wherein we test the efficacy of our products on various crops.
