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.

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.

 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”.

Zinc nutrition in plants has a strong bearing, much like zinc nutrition in human beings, especially infants and babies. Our investments in this product are intended to provide a strong foundation for healthy soil, producing healthy foods for a healthy nation.”

S.Nagarajan, Chief Operating Officer of Rallis India Limited, added, “Built on the principles of Zinc delicately bound in a Polyphosphate chain to prevent it from undesired reactions in soil, this innovative micronutrient fertiliser allows co-application with any crop nutrient source and acts as a slow-release fertiliser to improve use efficiency several times when compared with the traditional Zinc Sulphate. NAYAZINC™ represents a significant step forward in crop nutrient application”.

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.”
