“After being within the agrochemical industry for decades, I had realized that without a manufacturing set up you cannot serve industry or give farmers the best product at a competitive price. With that idea in mind in the year 1999 we established our full-fledged plant in Sikanderabad, UP and started the operations. Since then we have been successful in providing the best products to Indian farmers at honest price. As a company, Crop Growth has had a great historical track record for the best quality product and in future as well our full focus will be on providing the same quality to our farmers. Right now we are working in 5 states but in near future we also plan to expand to other states and extend the benefits of our products and services.”
“After working with Dow Chemicals for 2 years I joined Crop Growth India in 2010. In last few years of my experience if I have to state in a line about the company I would say we work on very clear objectives and make the most out of our limited resources. And hence we strive to provide a conducive environment and right culture to our employees so that they work at their full potential and aligned to the values of our organisation.
As an organisation we continuously look at the new avenues to help grow our people and ourselves also stay within the realm of ethical practices. All of these initiatives lead to delivering the right quality of products and timely delivery to our customers.”
“I have been working in Crop Growth India Pvt. Ltd. for last two year and my previous work experience has been with companies like GSK, Merck , Thermofisher Scientific, Grace Davison Discovery Sciences, Danaher Group And Waters India, handling varied product verticals. I have a strong belief that success can be achieved by investing our efforts in trained manpower and good quality products.
Agrochemicals industry depends on variable factors like uncertainty in rainfall, lack of irrigation facilities and changing crop patterns which in turn effects the farmers harvest. To deal with such challenges on a daily basis, the team needs constant guidance and motivation to perform to their full potential and that’s what gives me a great learning and execution opportunity.
At Crop Growth I handle a team of 30-35 sales people and we cater to around 1000 channel partners. A usual day at work pans out with resolving challenges of the team and ensuring we achieve our sales targets. It’s interesting to see the potential of agrochemicals business in India even for the companies who are working with ethics and quality.”
“I started my career in pesticides formulation industry 24 year back as an analyst QC.
I work as a part of the DGM Production Team for CGIPL, based out of Sikandrabad (NCR Delhi) from more than two years. My typical day begins with a quick check on previous day’s production and achievement, active planning and identifying the gaps in purchase and fixing them. For the rest of my day I spend time with my team, reviewing their work and supporting them.
Crop Growth is a great destination for making a career. As a manager, I get complete satisfaction from running a unit end to end – planning, testing, execution and measuring results. Also Manufacturing is a function which works closely with every other function in the business, gives me a complete insight of the way every other function performs to help us and the organisation succeed.
The best part of Crop Growth is the people. I work with a bunch of more than 25 talented people with an amazing passion to work and an energy that is infectious. It makes me addicted to this place.”
