Who we are
With nearly 1.2 billion population, India requires a robust, modernized agriculture sector to ensure the food security to its population. In order to meet the food grain requirements, the agricultural productivity and growth need to be sustained and further improved. It is imperative to manage fertilizers for a higher food production.
Chambal Fertilisers and Chemicals Ltd. accounts for nearly 15% of the total Urea produced in the country. Since more than two decades company has contributed to the food security of the country with responsibility. Its three hi-tech nitrogenous fertiliser (urea) plants are located at Gadepan in Kota district of Rajasthan. The three plants have an installed annual production capacity of about 3.4 million MT of Urea contributing to major chunk of Urea consumed in leading agri states in India. These plants were commissioned in 1994, 1999 and 2019 respectively. These plants use state-of-the-art technology from Denmark, Italy, United States and Japan.
The Gadepan III Plant commissioned recently is a state-of-art fertilizer unit. It is among the most efficient plants in the world and uses the latest technologies from KBR, USA and Toyo Engineering Corporation, Japan. The new plant has an installed annual production capacity of about 1.4 million MT of Urea.
The Company caters to the need of the farmers in ten states in northern, eastern, central and western regions of India and is the lead fertiliser supplier in the State of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana.

The company has further strengthened its position as lead fertilizer manufacturer in India after the commissioning of Gadepan III plant.
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.
