Agrinos Partnership with Zuari Agri Sciences Broadens Availability of High Yield Technology Biological Crop Inputs in Indian Marketplace

LYSAKER, Norway/NEW DELHI, India (August 5, 2015)―Agrinos, a leading biological crop input provider committed to improving the productivity and sustainability of agriculture worldwide, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Indian seed and crop care product provider Zuari Agri Sciences Ltd. 

This partnership greatly increases the availability of Agrinos’ unique and proprietary High Yield Technology® (HYT) biological crop solutions to Indian farmers. Zuari Agri Sciences, which will sell Chemfree powered by Agrinos’ HYT B product, is recognized as a leader in the Indian market, working with 6,000 distributors and dealers and 23 million farmers whose crops include wheat, rice, cotton, soybeans, sugarcane, fruits and vegetables. 

“Agrinos is pleased to align with a reputable organization like Zuari as we strive to market with strong, established partners in India and other geographies worldwide,” said Indranil Das, managing director of Agrinos India. “This opportunity will allow us to continue strengthening our local presence and offering our effective, globally proven and certified biological crop input solutions to Indian growers.”   

Zuari conducted several successful trials which confirmed measurable benefits of using Agrinos’ HYT B on crops including onions, cotton, sugarcane, watermelon, pigeon peas and flowers like Gerbera in both rain-fed and irrigated growing environments. 

Chemfree powered HYT B is a naturally derived biological crop nutrition product that increases activity of critical metabolic pathways in the crop aiding in the resistance of environmental and physiological stresses, stimulation of photosynthetic processes, and improvement of pollination rates and fruit formation. Implementation of this nutrient solution by Indian growers can boost production in an environmentally sensitive, efficient, and low-energy manner in alignment with Agrinos’ vision for sustainable agriculture. 

Agrinos has been operating in India since 2010 and currently has several successful distribution partnerships across the nation. Zuari Agri Sciences Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Zuari Agro Chemicals Ltd., is engaged in the production and trading of hybrid and high-yielding seeds and crop care products. Partnerships with highly regarded companies such as Zuari are critical as Agrinos continues to advance sales and distribution of its biological products in the Indian marketplace.
