This is a significant step in establishing integrated end-to-end business planning, response and supply planning processes for domestic and international businesses

Rallis India Limited, a Tata enterprise and a leading player in the Indian agri inputs industry, has successfully launched Plan Guru, a tool to simplify supply chain operations in its crop care and seeds divisions. This is a significant step in establishing integrated end-to-end business planning, response and supply planning processes for domestic and international businesses.

Sanjiv Lal, Managing Director, Rallis India Limited, said, “Plan Guru will bring transformations across the entire supply chain management (SCM) landscape, and help enhance individual capability. By transitioning away from manual processes and embracing a digitally integrated planning approach, we aim to facilitate seamless communication and collaboration across the entire supply chain. This shift, from person-dependent planning and independent data views to more accurate planning with interdependent data views, is a significant one. It will pave the way for improved effectiveness and more informed decision-making.”

Elaborating on the platform, Nagarajan S., Chief Operating Officer, Rallis India Limited, said, “Plan Guru will help us handle market disruptions more effectively since digitalisation brings greater visibility across the supply chain. Digitised real-time simulations of various scenarios allow us to better anticipate challenges, mitigate risks, and maintain a consistent flow of operations. This tool will help us optimise inventory levels while maximising customer service levels. This will thus help build stronger relationships while improving plant utilisation and optimising capital employed”

 Company’s Profit After Tax Margin improved by 60 bps under challenging conditions.

Rallis India Limited, a TATA Enterprise and a leading player in the Agri inputs industry announced its financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2023.

The Company recorded revenue of Rs 598 Cr for the third quarter ending December 31, 2023, vs Rs 630 Cr over PY. Profit after tax (after exceptional items) was at Rs 24 Cr vs Rs 22 Cr of PY.

Announcing the results, Sanjiv Lal, Managing Director & CEO, Rallis India, said, “During the Quarter, our Domestic business maintained its momentum despite challenging external conditions, recording volume growth of 7 per cent. However, challenges continued on the export front due to steep price drop and weak demand on account of continuing inventory overhang at industry level. Our focus on optimizing working capital and margin improvement continues.

We are closely monitoring Global market demand recovery and remain cautious about El Nino conditions. Global agro-chemical demand is still soft and is expected to recover only next financial year. Meanwhile, the company’s long-term strategy remains unchanged and is focused on refreshing product portfolio, widening of market reach, increasing manufacturing capacities and digitalization in operations”.

The ‘SeedSure’ app helps deal with critical operations such as data collection and crop assessment during different stages of the crop life cycle.

Rallis India Limited, a Tata enterprise and a leading player in the Indian agri inputs industry announced the roll out of a mobile application, ‘SeedSure’, for monitoring and managing its Hybrid Seed Production (HSP) program. The ‘SeedSure’ app helps deal with critical operations such as data collection and crop assessment during different stages of the crop life cycle. Seedsure is developed with the help of TCS.

Management of Hyrbrid Seed Production is a complex task for many organisations and inefficient seed production monitoring leads to problems like measurable reduction in crop yield or unanticipated yield drops.

Commenting on the introduction of ‘SeedSure’, Sanjiv Lal, MD & CEO of Rallis India Limited, said, “This hybrid seed production monitoring app marks a significant milestone in our journey towards efficient operations. At Rallis India, we recognise the critical role that technology plays in addressing the challenges of the complex seed production process. ‘SeedSure’ is a testament to our unwavering commitment to leveraging innovation and technology to solve these complex challenges”.

Commenting on the diverse merits of ‘SeedSure’, S Nagarajan, Chief Operating Officer of Rallis India Limited, said, “In today’s times, interventions such as ‘SeedSure’ are important for agri input players as they help seamless data collection, monitoring and management of the Hybrid seed Production program. The robust data collected will help in improving production quality, apart from providing early signals of any production challenges. In future, we aim to integrate it with remotely sensed weather and crop data to support AI/ML based predictions on crop yields at a plot level. It is a robust, data-driven and an at-scale approach towards seed management, which paves the way for improved & predictable yields and quality.”

The result of a strategic partnership with Japan-based agro-chem company, Benzilla’s unique formulation incorporates patented BPX active ingredient for BPH control.

Rallis India Limited, a Tata enterprise and a leading player in the Indian agri inputs industry has launched its differentiated crop protection product, ‘Benzilla’. Backed by extensive research and field trials, Benzilla is a cutting-edge product powered by patented BPX technology from Japan that promises to redefine crop management practices, boost yields and benefit farmers. The result of a strategic partnership between Rallis India Limited and Japan-based agro-chem company, Nihon Nohyaku Co., Ltd (Japan), Benzilla’s unique formulation incorporates IGR technology, ensuring a prolonged and sustained control of Brown Plant Hopper (BPH) infestations in paddy crops.

BPH is regarded as one of the most devastating pests for paddy, which causes serious damage to the crop by sucking the sap from plants, leading to ‘hopper burn’. It also causes indirect damage by transmitting viral diseases such as grassy stunt and ragged stunt viruses.

Speaking about the importance of crop protection solutions in Indian agriculture, Sanjiv Lal, MD & CEO, Rallis India Limited, said, “The agriculture industry is an important contributor to the Indian economy. The role played by the crop protection market is critical in this context, and with the introduction of Benzilla, we aim to strengthen the way BPH is managed in paddy crops in India. We believe this innovation will not only enhance crop protection but also contribute to the sustainability and prosperity of Indian agriculture.”

Adding to this, S Nagarajan, COO, Rallis India Limited, said, “Benzilla is our breakthrough product for paddy farmers. Being a unique mixture of two highly effective technicals, it is designed to target both nymphs and adult BPH, offering a comprehensive approach to control BPH. This multistage action represents its unique differentiation versus the other solutions in the market.  This product is being introduced for the first time in India.”

“While Benzilla is being launched first in Chhattisgarh, it will subsequently be introduced in other major paddy producing states such as– Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, West Bengal and Odisha in the coming months”, concluded S Nagarajan.

The company expects CAPSTONE and ZAAFU to make up more than 10 per cent of its crop protection portfolio’s fungicide category

A TATA Enterprise Rallis India Limited, has announced the introduction of two new fungicides, CAPSTONE and ZAAFU, which are intended to combat different types of neck blast and sheath blight.

The fungicide portfolio of Rallis India Limited is well known in the market, and the company expects CAPSTONE and ZAAFU to make up more than 10 per cent of its crop protection portfolio’s fungicide category.

Rallis India launches CAPSTONE for the first time on the Indian market to treat this disease. Fenoxanil and Isoprothialane are the main ingredients in CAPSTONE. Isoprothiolane is an inhibitor of lipid biosynthesis, whereas Fenoxanil is an inhibitor of melanin biosynthesis. For the first time in India, farmers will now have access to a mixture containing Fenoxanil. In collaboration with Nihon Nohyaku, a Japanese company that develops agrochemicals, this product was created in India.

CAPSTONE has a dual mode of action because it is a combination of two different action fungicides, giving it qualities like excellent efficacy, longer duration of disease control, no cross-resistance, and prevention against resistance build-up.

The systemic fungicide ZAAFU has a special formulation. Zaafu offers a great treatment for Sheath Blight and Sheath Rot in Paddy. It is a fungicide in the form of granules that are intended to be broadcast in the field along with the first top dressing of fertiliser.
