Sameer Goel, Managing Director, Coromandel International said, “Coromandel had a strong performance in Q2FY21, despite the unprecedented external environment posed by Covid-19 pandemic. Better than normal rainfall in the country specially in the Company’s key markets, good soil moisture conditions and pro-active steps taken by the Government for Agriculture have resulted in increased crop sowing area and very good demand for agricultural inputs."
However, he added that excessive and continuous rainfall in September has resulted in crop losses and postponement of some agricultural applications.
