Chambal Fertilisers and Chemicals Limited is one of the largest private sector fertilizer producers in India. It was promoted by Zuari Industries Limited in the year 1985. Its two hi-tech nitrogenous fertiliser (urea) plants are located at Gadepan in Kota district of Rajasthan. The two plants produce about 2 million MT of Urea per annum. The first plant was commissioned in 1993 and second plant in 1999. These plants use state-of-the-art technology from Denmark, Italy, United States and Japan.
The company caters to the need of the farmers in eleven states in northern, eastern, central and western regions of India and is the lead fertiliser supplier in the State of Rajasthan. The Company has a vast marketing network comprising 13 regional offices, 1,700 dealers and 20,000 village level outlets.
The Company has donned the mantle of providing all agri-products through a 'single window' to enable the farmer to buy all products from one source. The Company dealers provide Urea and other agri-inputs like DAP (Di-Ammonium Phosphate), MOP (Murate of Potash), SSP(Single Super Phosphate), pesticides and seeds. Most of these products are sourced from reputed suppliers and sold under the 'Uttam' umbrella brand. Today, the Company has attained a leadership position in the pesticide business in North India.
To promote sustainable farming practices, Chambal has a well structured farmer advisory programme known as 'Uttam Bandhan'. Under this programme, the company organizes crop seminars, product and field demonstrations and farmer meets. Soil and water analysis is also conducted for free at Chambal's laboratories and based on the results; Chambal experts emphasize on balance use of fertilisers.
To encourage the new age farmer, a website, 'uttamkrishi.com', provides information on the weather, suitable cropping techniques and markets in Hindi language. 'Hello Uttam' toll-free telephonic helplines have been set-up to answer the queries raised by farmers. Unemployed youth from villages are enrolled as 'Uttam Krishi Salhakars'. They are trained in the latest farming techniques and provide specialised services to farmers.
