Sectorial Outlook

Agriculture in India was historically viewed as a traditional occupation mainly catered to the needs of self-consumption rather than a commercial activity to make wealth of it. The demand for food grains in the latter half of the 20th century led to the Green Revolution. Today farming is more commercialized and there is a growing awareness on the need for improved high yielding varieties, and efficient management of inputs such as water, nutrition and management of pests. It is estimated that 88% of the total available water is being currently used in agriculture. Due to the indiscriminate use of irrigation water and fertilizers, fertile soils have become water logged and saline. The use of micro irrigation techniques and fertigation is the only way to manage these resources efficiently.

A predominantly agricultural economy with 182 million hectares of cultivable land, India produces more than 200 million tons of food grain.

India’s territorial landscape is disparate, with a plethora of soils and vegetation. Crops are seasonal and every state has a distinct culture and lifestyle. Reaching out to 65% of her 1 billion people, who depend on agriculture for a living, is a tremendous challenge.

Rallis has always been the Indian farmer’s close friend. Company’s comprehensive range of agro inputs and services are spread across 80% of India’s districts through an extensive distribution network of loyal and supportive dealers and retailers.

Company’s vast experience and extensive research in agricultural products has geared us up to meet global challenges. It’s little wonder then that Rallis has emerged as one of the leaders in the Indian Agrochemical Industry.

Conclusion

Backed by tata group company has recorded nearly highest every quarterly sales for the Q1FY2022. Further ,recent stance taken by the government to push end users for using make in india fertiliser products thereby reducing dependence on imported fertiliser products is also going to add more to the Rallis India. Company does not have any debt also operating profit margins have been stable although increased by 1% in the last financial year it is expected to improve further. There is high expectation of increase in company’s top-line revenue in the coming period. Taking this into consideration Rallis India is worth Exploring for long term.
