Its net profit stood at Rs 45.06 crore in the year-ago period, the Pune-based company said in a regulatory filing.
Total income grew by 19 per cent to Rs 1,283.30 crore in the quarter under review from Rs 1,078.05 crore in the year- ago period.
DFPCL's CMD Sailesh C Mehta said the performance has been encouraging with better volumes and higher capacity utilisation.
"Monsoons in most of our core markets have been good and as compared to past couple of years, there has been a healthy demand for farm inputs, especially complex fertilisers. Apropos normal rains, we are optimistic about a better performance during the upcoming rabi season too," he said.
