About Us

/ About Us

Tropical Agrosytem (India) Pvt. Ltd., is a leader in the Indian crop protection & plant nutrition industry. Established in 1969, we have evolved into the fastest-growing company with a turnover of USD 147 million, proudly part of ‘The Jhaver group,’ a century-old multinational enterprise. Renowned for our diverse range of agricultural solutions, spanning chemical, biological & organic farming, we are among the Top 2 Indian branded companies in the crop protection & plant nutrition segment.

Beyond the realms of agriculture, Tropical Agrosystem (India) Pvt. Ltd. has ventured into the real estate business. Noteworthy projects such as Madhu Apartments in 2011 and Tropical Krishna Tulsi in 2012-13 reflect our commitment to excellence. With an upcoming project at Ambattur covering 9.5 acres, our dedication extends to creating sustainable and vibrant living spaces.

Since the financial year 2022, Tropical Agrosystem (India) Pvt. Ltd. has diversified into letting out immovable properties on a rental basis, featuring locations in Kodaikanal, Guduvancheri, Velachery, and New Delhi.

From Humble Beginnings to Conscious Sustainable Farming

Our journey began with agrochemicals, but in 2011, we realigned our goals to shape the future of farming, addressing global challenges in food security, safety, and soil health preservation. This shift led us to venture into bio-organic farming solutions, introducing a new vertical that enabled residue-free farming. Our evolving product portfolio now includes biological pesticides, fungicides, bio-organic fertilizers, bio-stimulants, and other organic nutrients.

As we expanded, additional verticals in plant nutrition & post-harvest were incorporated. Our commitment to innovation prompted global partnerships with reputed companies, bringing cutting-edge product formulations that simplify farming practices. The strategic strengthening of our pan-India distribution network and the attainment of supply chain efficiency through well-planned marketing tie-ups have emerged as key catalysts fuelling our growth.

Moreover, our outreach to more than 8 crore farmers across India forms our dedicated customer base, contributing significantly to our success. We remain steadfast in strengthening this linkage through sustained and concerted efforts. Our focus continues to be on enriching stakeholder lives through responsible and conscious farming methods, contributing not only to our sustainability goals but also supporting India’s aspiration to be the ‘Food Basket of the World.’

At Tropical Agrosystem (India) Pvt. Ltd., we are not just shaping the future of agriculture; we are cultivating a legacy of innovation, sustainability, and responsible farming practices.
