The fertiliser and agri-related companies rallied amid expectations of strong earnings growth in the October-December quarter (Q3FY20). With better acreage in Rabi 2019-20 and strong input consumption, the analysts expect domestic agrochemical and fertiliser companies to benefit.

Analyst at Emkay Global Financial Services expect agri input companies to deliver robust revenue growth in Q3 on higher rabi sowing (7 per cent yoy) and higher water availability (reservoir levels +52 per cent/+41 per cent above last year/10-year average) in the wake of good rainfall and a low base from last year.
