    Dharmaj Crop Guard Limited IPO Strengths:

    • Dharmaj Crop Guard Limited has diversified its product portfolio since its incorporation and has grown into a multi-product manufacturer of agrochemical products such as insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, plant growth regulators, micro fertilizers, and antibiotics.

It has built its business organically and has demonstrated consistent growth in terms of revenues and profitability. The strong balance sheet and positive operating cash flows coupled with low levels of debt of the company enable it to fund its strategic initiatives, pursue opportunities for growth, better negotiations with vendors and better manage unanticipated cash flow variations. The financial strength provides it a valuable competitive advantage over its competitors with access to financing, which is critical to its business.

    • Dharmaj Crop Guard Limited’s strong R&D capabilities allow it to discover new mixtures and register new formulations for the agrochemical business. New research areas are guided by the advancement of new technologies based on customer needs, technology, and regulatory requirements.

    • Dharmaj Crop Guard Limited’s ability to deliver sufficient quantities of agrochemical products to farmers with short lead time is critical, particularly given the seasonal nature of cropping. The company has a pan-India sales and dealer presence in 17 states with a dedicated sales force that provides customer service and undertakes product promotion. As of August 31, 2022, the network comprised over 4,200 dealers having access to 16 stock depots supporting the distribution of the company’s branded products in 17 states of India.
