Indian Fertilizer Industry

Since agriculture is a very important sector it goes without saying that the fertilizer industry is one which the Indian economy cannot do without. The fertilizer industry in India is extremely vital as it manufactures some of the most important raw materials required for crop production. The primary objective of this industry is to ensure the inflow of both primary and secondary elements required for crop production in the desirable quantities.

The success of the agricultural sector in India is largely dependent on the fertilizer industry. The benchmark that the food industry in India has set is mainly due to the many technically competent fertilizer producing companies in the country.

India is home to numerous top class private and government fertilizer companies. Ranging from fertilizers to seeds to fungicides the many fertilizer companies in India are the major reason behind the success story of the sector in India.
