Deepak Fertilizer and Petrochemicals Corporation Limited started its first commercial production in the year 1983. It was the only Indian company that produced ammonia at that time. DFPCL specializes in the production of chemicals and agriculture-related products.

Deepak Fertilizer and Petrochemicals Corporation Limited is a venture undertaken by the Deepak Group of Industries set up by Mr. C.K. Mehta. The company began to grow in the year 1989 by which time DFPCL had become proficient in the production of agricultural products, fertilizers, petrochemical, and chemicals.

The company is known for production of 'Mahadan', a popular brand name for its nitrophosphate fertilizer production. 'Mahadan' is a quality product of DFPCL and is well-distributed through more than 1000 dealers. It is also regarded as being among the most highly in-demand brands of nitrophosphate fertilizers.

Products like 'Mahadan' are an outcome of the use of international technology. For instance, DFPCL has utilized technology from Stamicarbon (The Netherlands) for the production of Mahadan. This move made DFPCL one of the largest producers of nitrophosphate fertilizers in India.

The 'Mahadan' brand of fertilizers is mainly marketed in Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, and Punjab. The other important fertilizers produced by Deepak Fertilizers are:

  • Mixture Fertilizer - A quality product in mixture of fertilizers widely available under the brand name 'Bhoodan'.
  • Mahadan Potash - A potassic fertilizer used for improving the quality of crops
  • Mahadan Power and Mahadan Chetak - Quality brands for complex fertilizers
The marketing network of DFPCL comprises of two operations as far its fertilizers production is concerned:

  • Dealership
  • Sugar co-operatives networks
DFPCL had launched its first Mahadhan Saarrthie Center in Pune on 28th October, 2006. The main aim in setting up these centers was to provide agriculture solutions. These centers will provide efficient information services to farmers on various customer service issues. Agronomists and other experts are already involved at the DFPCL centers.

DFPCL is committed to implementing new and efficient measures for maintaining constant growth and production of quality commodities. Some of these new measures include utilization of international technology, wide distribution network, popular branding, efficient management system, and a well-equipped infrastructure.

The company doesn't lag behind n terms of corporate social responsibility either. It has established trusts such as Deepak Charitable Trust and Deepak Medical Foundation. DFPCL is focused on the areas of childcare, women's health, and environment protection.

The future plans of Deepak Fertilizer and Petrochemicals Corporation Limited include enhancing its distribution network and probably introducing training and education in the respective field for farmers as well.
