About UsHistory

History of Shriram Farm Solutions

The Shriram saga began in 1969 when the first bag of Urea moved out of the factory from Kota. Amongst the first private sector fertilisers produced in the country, Shriram Urea went on to set the standards for quality in Indian Agriculture. The formation of DSCL in 1990 marked the beginning of our transformation into a comprehensive Agri Inputs Player. Having identified Agriculture as a core area of growth, DSCL started looking beyond Urea. Domestic & International alliances were forged, to expand our product range into other fertilizers, pesticides and seeds.

Over the past two decades, we have rapidly expanded our portfolio, ventured into new markets and strengthened our distribution network. More importantly, we have managed to strengthen relationship with the farming community. We are probably one of the very few organisations in the country which have the ability to cater to most input requirements of the farmer and the crop. Our portfolio comprises of basic nutrition products, yield enhancement products, crop protection products and improved seed varieties. These are offered on a strong agronomy services platform that provides localized and customized solutions for the farmer.

As one of the pioneers in the field of Indian agriculture, we realize the responsibility on us of addressing the falling productivity and the imminent threat of national food insecurity. The need of the day is not just providing a range of quality inputs, but in providing productivity solutions. As a step towards demonstrating our intent to play this greater role in Indian Agriculture, we have reconfigured our business to offer farm Solutions. In our new avatar, we renew our commitment to work towards improving farm productivity and incomes.
