From the desk of CEO

Tapas Konar

Chief Executive Officer

Before I pen down key business aspects of ‘First Quarter’ of 2021-2022 for Ramnagar Seed Farm Pvt Ltd, I must salute our farming community, trade partners and my colleagues engaged in field, plant, R&D and office works for our organisation for their whole hearted dedication, bulldog tenacity and tremendous sacrifice to fight against a very unnatural situation which prevailed due to partial lockdown arisen out of sudden outbreak of second wave of pandemic. It also gives me some sense of relief that vaccination process for Indians aged 18 plus have been started countrywide.

Coming to Agriculture, First Quarter or Q-1 of 2021-22 was full of challenges, including very low commodity price for the farmers for coarse grain like paddy, & maize, huge shortage of labourers, restrictions of business hours to agricultural shops imposed by different State Govt, complete restriction of train movement, limited  services of buses, complete restrictions on night travel, sudden hit of cyclone ‘Yaas’ in West Bengal & Odisha during peak sales time and many more. Everywhere our team members boldly stood in the frontline to face the challenges and finally won the game. Kudos to all my team members!

I feel pleasure and proud that our Corporate Division has doubled up its growth on last year volume and has surpassed its target for 2021-22 kharif comfortably. We have grown both in FC & Vegetables. Hard work of every team members has resulted excellent performance on recovery part too. Initial indication of sales return depicts, that even while most of the companies will have very high percentage of sales return over 2020-21, Ramnagar Seed Farm Pvt Ltd will be much lower than the budgeted sales return percentage this year. This has been possible due to meticulous planning and clearing our terms to the trade partners much before the Season started.

I take pride to inform you that Ramnagar Seed Farm Pvt Ltd has been listed within ‘Top 10 Seed Companies in India’, on growth perspective for last two years by ‘Industry Outlook’ (A sister Concern of Outlook group) and has been featured in the front page of Industry Outlook magazine in August 2021 issue. This is the result of tremendous hard work & perseverance of our team members during last two years.

Expansion works of R &D in terms of scientists, facilities & processes have been started in a massive way and organisation will have a ‘Sea Change’ approach in delivery of products to the farming community within next two years.

Warm Regards,
Ramnagar Seed Farm Pvt Ltd
